(FootballStL) – Rams running back Terrance Ganaway announced Wednesday he would be retiring from football.

According to Jim Thomas of the Post-Dispatch, he’s giving up the game to go to graduate school.

Ganaway, a sixth-round pick out of Baylor in 2012, was slotted fourth on the Rams depth chart at running back.

He ran for 1,547 yards and 21 TDs in his last college season. He suited up for only three games in the NFL- all for the Rams- though did not record any stats.

Ganaway made waves in the offseason by taking a job at Jimmy John’s in Waco while preparing for 2013.  

Jeff Fisher was asked what the conversation was like with Ganaway.

 “It was a great conversation. He came in this morning and said that he’s decided that he wants to go back to school and he’s talked it over with his wife and his family. I was happy for him. It’s not often a guy can walk away from the game on your own terms. I also told him that I felt like he had ability to play in this league. He can walk away having participated, a great college career with an outstanding football team and take those memories with him and go on with his life,” Fisher said.
