Well dang.

NCAA Football: Michigan at Penn State Matthew O’Haren-USA TODAY Sports

After being recently brought back to the team earlier this summer, Manny Bowen is once again no longer with the program. Lions247 was the first to report the news, and a Penn State spokesman confirmed Bowen’s departure to Sean Fitz and Co.

Bowen’s reinstatement was announced at Media Day on August 4 after the rising senior linebacker met stipulations throughout the offseason put forth by James Franklin. Bowen, a rising senior linebacker, was expected to compete with Jan Johnson for the starting middle linebacker job.

Bowen leaves Penn State having played in 30 games. The 6-foot-1, 238-pound linebacker was a starter the last two years, posting seasons of 67 tackles and 8.5 TFLs as a sophomore and 51 tackles and 3 TFLs as a junior.

All the best to Bowen in the future.
