Rutgers quarterback Artur Sitkowski pulled his name out of the NCAA transfer portal and intends to remain at Rutgers, multiple outlets reported on Monday.

Sitkowski reportedly changed his mind due to the hiring of Greg Schiano as coach. Schiano addressed the team for the first time on Monday.

Sitkowski entered his name in the portal a week ago, according to published reports.

Sitkowski was a starter in 2018 when he passed for 1,158 yards, four touchdowns and 18 interceptions. He played in three games in 2019 — including passing for 304 yards in a loss to Boston College — but decided to redshirt after the school fired coach Chris Ash in late September.

Sitkowski has three seasons of eligibility remaining.

Schiano went 68-67 in 11 seasons as Rutgers’ coach from 2001-11 before leaving to become coach of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
