For D’Eriq King and Houston, this seemed to be the only inevitable ending.

In September, King announced that he had decided to voluntarily sideline himself for the remainder of the 2019 season and take a redshirt.  One day later, the quarterback indicated he was staying with the Cougars.  When November rolled around, however, it was reported that there was little chance D’Eriq King would return to Houston.

Monday night, in a simple statement posted to Twitter, King confirmed he’s on his way out.
