Senior quarterback DaMarcus Smith is no longer a member of the Mean Green football program. Smith’s name was removed from the team website Thursday.

A source close to the team said North Texas coaches and Smith decided during off-season evaluations it’s in his best interest to continue his career elsewhere.

Smith transferred to North Texas from Butler Community College last season and started six games for the Mean Green. He completed 47 percent of his passes for 1,010 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. Smith was also the team’s second-leading rusher, running for 427 yards on 92 carries.

Smith was slow to get acclimated with the North Texas offense in 2015 due to not participating in spring workouts. He started his first game against Western Kentucky University on Thursday, Oct. 15 after the team was blown out by Portland State University the Saturday before. Former head coach Dan McCarney was fired immediately after the Portland State loss, and interim head coach Mike Canales made the switch at quarterback immediately.

He started every game of the season from that point on, with the exception of the season finale against the University of Texas at El Paso.
