DiNucci announced his decision Thursday, two days after third-string redshirt freshman quarterback Thomas MacVittie said he was leaving the program. While MacVittie played on special teams this season and never took a snap under center, DiNucci appeared in 10 games, including six starts.
He completed 88 of 158 passes for 1,091 yards with five touchdowns and five interceptions. He also ran for 126 yards and a touchdown as the Panthers went 5-7.
Following his plans to transfer in January, DiNucci will have two years of eligibility remaining.
