Former Cal quarterback Zach Kline intends to transfer to Oregon State, according to the Portland Tribune.

Kline lost the starting job to Jared Goff during training camp. After fighting all season for playing time, the quarterback from Danville, Calif., announced his intent to transfer from Cal on Dec. 1. During the season, Kline completed 43 of 82 passes for 443 yards with three touchdown passes and four interceptions.

As per NCAA rules, Kline must sit one season before he becomes eligible to play for the Beavers. His first year of eligibility will be 2015, and he will have three years of eligibility left once that season begins.

Oregon State starter Sean Mannion will be a senior in 2014, which may leave the door open for Kline to take the starting job in 2015.
