SEC: Georgia tailback Ken Malcome to transfer

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Georgia tailback Ken Malcome has announced plans to transfer as he seeks increased playing time at another school. Malcome, a sophomore, left the team for one day in 2011 before changing his mind and returning to the team. He began the 2012 season as the starter but was soon passed on the depth chart by freshmen Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. Malcome had 57 carries for 274 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games, including one start. Coach Mark Richt says he wishes Malcome "nothing but the best" and will assist in his search for a new school.
