YPSILANTI, Mich. — Former LSU quarterback Rob Bolden has a new home: Eastern Michigan.

Bolden, a Michigan native who spent his first two college seasons at Penn State before joining the Tigers, transferred to Eastern Michigan, the school announced Friday.

Bolden came to LSU in 2012 and played that position for two years before moving to wide receiver during spring practice. He never played a down for the Tigers.

“I am happy to be home with a new start and look to make my final year special,” Bolden said in a university news release. “I appreciate the opportunity that coach (Chris) Creighton is giving me and look forward to an exciting season. The support of my family has been tremendous throughout the entire process and I thank them all for that.”

Bolden threw for 2,045 yards and seven touchdowns while with the Nittany Lions.
