In 2021, Bethley earned first-team All-Mountain West Conference honors at safety after accumulating 100 tackles (73 solo) with four sacks, three forced fumbles, six pass breakups and five interceptions.

Bethley’s announcement comes after a handful of notable departures from the team, including quarterback Chevan Cordeiro (San Jose State), defensive tackles Jonah Laulu (Oklahoma) and Justus Tavai (San Diego State), linebacker Darius Muasau (UCLA), cornerback Cameron Lockridge (South Alabama) and wide receiver Nick Mardner (Cincinnati).

Bethley, who joined UH in 2018, has one year of eligibility remaining, unless he plays in four games or less in 2022 and utilizes a redshirt.
