NEW: Birdsong Says He Won Appeal

Posted: April 23, 2014

HARRISONBURG — Michael Birdsong says he’s won his appeal.

Early Wednesday afternoon, the James Madison quarterback tweeted, “Thank you Jmu and all who helped me with the appeal process! #winning”

Birdsong was challenging football coach Everett Withers’ decision to ban him from transferring to several non-Colonial Athletic Association schools, going back, Birdsong said, on an agreement they made that would bar him from only CAA schools.

Birdsong had his appeal — it was heard by faculty, not athletics personnel — Tuesday afternoon.

The exact ruling of the panel is unknown. Birdsong did not immediately return a text message seeking comment.
