He announced the news on his Twitter. You can read it below.

This is great news for the Northwestern football program. Hunter Johnson was the guy this past season slinging it for Pat Fitzgerald’s team, and he was horrible.

I can’t stress this enough for you all. Northwestern was horrific with Hunter Johnson as the starting quarterback.

He might have had all the hype in the world coming out of high school, but he was atrocious for Fitzgerald. It was painful to watch.

That’s how Green got himself hurt. He entered the game when Johnson was struggling, got injured and his season came to a quick end.

Now, Fitzgerald will have another real option in spring camp. That’s good news because riding with Johnson again might result in another horrific season.
