Notre Dame QB Drew Pyne tags out before bowl game, enters transfer portal
As Notre Dame finalizes a practice schedule for an upcoming bowl game, the Fighting Irish can add a new starting quarterback to their plans moving forward.
Starting QB Drew Pyne said in a Twitter post Friday that he’s out at Notre Dame, opting to enter the transfer portal where he’s sure to be a popular option.
“One of my proudest honors is to have been a student-athlete at the University of Notre Dame,” Pyne wrote. “I have been blessed to be among great coaches and teachers and play with teammates I consider brothers. Our bonds will be lifelong. Now, it’s time for me to take on a new challenge, and I will be entering the transfer portal. While I’m excited about what lies ahead, I want to thank the entire Notre Dame community for their support. I am forever grateful for the experience and memories.”
Pyne had 22 touchdown passes and six interceptions with an 8-2 record in 10 starts (11 games) in 2022. He has three years of eligibility remaining and had a number of high-profile offers before the Connecticut native chose to head to South Bend, Ind., over Alabama, Auburn, Oklahoma and Michigan.
A two-time HS state champion, Pyne replaced Tyler Buchner as Notre Dame’s starter in September after the Fighting Irish opened the season 0-2.
