Alex Hornibrook leaves Wisconsin football program

Alex Hornibrook has elected to leave the Wisconsin football team, head coach Paul Chryst announced Wednesday.

β€œAlex informed us of his decision to leave the team earlier today,” Chryst said. β€œHe contributed to a lot of our recent success and we want to thank him for all he did for our program. We wish him the best of luck.”

Hornibrook went 26-6 in three seasons as a starting quarterback for the Badgers, including a 20-4 record in Big Ten games. His .813 winning percentage is the best of any quarterback in program history. He started nine games as a junior last season, throwing for 1,532 yards and 13 touchdowns.

He ranks in a tie for third all-time at Wisconsin in touchdown passes (47), fourth in completion percentage (60.5%) and fifth in passing yards (5,438).
