USC backup quarterback Matt Fink decides against playing a sixth season

Matt Fink, the backup quarterback who came off the bench to pilot one of the Trojans’ most impressive wins in recent memory, plans to move on from USC, a person familiar with the decision confirmed to The Times.

A redshirt senior last year, Fink could’ve returned for a sixth season of eligibility in 2021 with all athletes granted an additional year by the NCAA because of the pandemic.

Instead, after five seasons and one start under center at USC, Fink will pursue other opportunities after earning his master’s degree from USC this spring. Fink’s plans were first reported by TrojanSports.
