ANN ARBOR -- Michigan loses another potential fifth year candidate to transfer.

Announcing on his Instagram account on Friday, senior quarterback Russell Bellomy elects to not receive a fifth-year and will look to play his final year of eligibility elsewhere according to NCAA regulations.

Michigan lost running back Justice Hayes earlier this week as well.

"To those of you that know me well, I always try my hardest never to get emotional; however, I write this with a heavy heart," Bellomy wrote on his Instagram post. "My heart is packed full of experiences, acquaintances and irreplaceable memories that I will reminisce on for the rest of my life.

"I love each and every one of my teammates, both former and present, and I hope y'all know that every day I busted my butt for you and the benefit of UM."

U-M granted his release and will allow Bellomy to speak with any program that does not appear on the 2015 schedule.

Bellomy appeared sparingly in his career at U-M and finished 46-yards passing with four interceptions.
