my guess is that Carmouche is looking for playing time and would likely transfer down a level to a Sun Belt type school
Part of it is probably playing time. Memphis is pretty stacked at SG, even moreso if the knucklehead Johnson from JUCO qualifies. But he also had some attitude/discipline issues last year that kept him off the court. He briefly lost eligibility over a massage he refused to pay for at the hotel the team stayed at in Maui. He came back for a few games, had a very minor knee injury that healed sufficently, then basically refused to play again. I think his and Pastner's relationship simply ran its course.
Also, I think calling him a combo guard is very kind. He's a spot-up shooter, period (though a pretty good one).
