Etling guided the Tigers to an overall record of 7-4 in 2016, including a win over Louisville in the Citrus Bowl, as well as a 9-3 record in 2017, including a loss to Notre Dame in the Citrus Bowl.
A 7th-round selection by the New England Patriots in the 2018 NFL Draft, Etling spent seasons on New England's practice squad, including 2018 as a quarterback and 2019 as a receiver, before signing with the practice squad of the Atlanta Falcons and transitioning back to quarterback in 2019.
