Gleeson, who came to Wyoming from Australia, announced today on his Twitter account that would be transferring to Tennessee.

He tweeted, “A rich history with a football program on the rise #govols.”

In 2012, Gleeson averaged 43 yards per punt on 62 punts, fourth best in the Mountain West and 27th nationally. He had 21 punts downed inside the 20-yard line, and was an honorable mention All-Mountain West selection.

Cowboys coach Dave Christensen said at the time of the announcement that Gleeson was returning to Australia for “personal reasons.”

Tennessee has yet to comment on the transfer.

Gleeson would have to sit out the 2013 season due to NCAA transfer rules, and have three years to play three in 2014.
