Tennessee Names Former Michigan Quarterback Joe Milton Starting Quarterback

Joe Milton is starting for Tennessee.

Joe Milton is going to get his shot at redemption this season.

After losing Michigan's starting quarterback job to Cade McNamara last season, Milton entered the transfer portal with hopes of earning an opportunity elsewhere.

He'll get that shot this season as he's been named Tennessee's starting quarterback for the season opener against Bowling Green.

Milton beat out Virginia Tech transfer Hooker Hendon and top-100 2020 prospect Harrison Bailey for the starting spot.

After a hot start last season in which he threw for 300 or more yards twice in his first three games, Milton cooled down, going just 9-for-19 for 98 yards and two interceptions against Wisconsin and 5-for-12 against Rutgers before he was replaced by McNamara.
