After three years of inconsistent playing time, Auburn senior quarterback Clint Moseley is moving on.

Auburn junior quarterback Clint Moseley is leaving the program, according to Justin Hokanson of auburnsports.com ($).

Moseley lost battles for the starting job in fall camp before the 2011 and '12 seasons, but he came on midway through each season after ineffective play by Auburn's starters, Barrett Trotter and Kiehl Frazier. Moseley started nine games for the Tigers, and he completed 61.9 percent of his passes for 1,173 yards, six touchdowns and six interceptions during his career on the Plains. After injuring his ankle early against Texas A&M this season, Moseley surrendered the starting job to true freshman Jonathan Wallace.

Honestly, this doesn't come as much of a surprise. Despite Chris Todd's success in 2009, Gus Malzahn's offensive system works best with a mobile quarterback, and Moseley is the polar opposite of fleet-footed. With Frazier and Wallace still on the roster. There was a good chance that he would have been buried at third string as a senior in 2013.
