MANHATTAN, Kan. – Head football coach Ron Prince announced Thursday afternoon that sophomore offensive lineman Matt Boss has decided to leave the Kansas State football program.
“Matt expressed to me that he no longer has an interest in playing football or attending Kansas State and has decided to return home,” Prince said. “We would have liked to see him stay and at least finish out the academic semester at K-State, but he has opted to do otherwise and we wish him the best of luck with his future endeavors.”
Boss, a native of Cherryvale, Kan., who redshirted as a true freshman in 2004, started the opening two games of the 2005 season, but was slowed by an injury vs. North Texas and was able to make just one more appearance – a start at Nebraska in the second-to-last game of the year – the rest of the season.
This season, Boss has appeared in just one game, seeing time as a reserve in K-State’s 45-0 win over Florida Atlantic on Sept. 9.
