Purdue coach Darnell Hazell names Danny Etling starting QB

Purdue Boilermakers head Coach Darnell Hazell named Sophomore Danny Etling his starting QB for the 2014 season. Hazell is hoping for a better showing than the 1-11 campaign in his first season at Purdue. Etling took over before halftime of the fifth game last season, against Northern Illinois, from then-senior Rob Henry. In Purdue’s next game, against Nebraska following a bye week, Etling made the first of his seven straight starts. Etling completed 149-of-267 passes for 1,690 yards with 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions, including going 33-of-49 for 485 yards and four touchdowns in the Boilermakers’ season-ending loss at Indiana.
