Charlotte, NC – Charlotte 49ers head coach Alan Major announced that Marcus Bryan will be transferring.

“We want to thank Marcus for all his efforts this past season,” Major said. “We wish him nothing but the best as he seeks his future opportunities.”

This past season, Bryan saw action in 31 games. He averaged 3.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per game. He recorded two double-figure scoring games.

“I would like to thank Coach Major, the staff, and my teammates for their support during my time at Charlotte,” Bryan said. “However, I feel it is in my best interest to head in a different direction at this time.”

The 49ers return starting forward six-foot-nine Willie Clayton, who ranked among the nation’s leaders in rebounding last season, and starting center six-foot-eleven Mike Thorne, who recorded five double-doubles and 14 double-figure scoring games last season. Six-foot-nine forward Cameron Blakely saw action in 15 games off the bench last season. The 49ers welcome six-foot-eight forward Bernard Sullivan, who sat out this past season after transferring from Clemson University, to the 2014-15 roster.

The 49ers finished this past season with a 17-14 record, captured the Puerto Rico Tip-Off title and earned a first-round bye in the Conference USA Tournament.
