Doerue spoke on why he decided to transfer saying, “I built a good relationship with the running back coach, and I really liked the coaching staff. Now I want to experience the West Coast a little bit and see how it is out there, but I had a great time at Purdue, but you know I’m taking my career elsewhere and I feel like Cal Berkeley is gonna be good for me.”
