QB Jack Coan announces transfer to Notre Dame

Former Wisconsin quarterback Jack Coan announced Monday night that he’s transferring to Notre Dame for the 2021 season.

Coan entered the transfer portal on Dec. 20.

“Extremely thankful for the opportunity,” Coan posted to Twitter.

“Thank you Wisconsin for the greatest four years of my life,” Coan said in a statement released by the Badgers.

Coan joins a crowded quarterback room in South Bend, Ind., to compete for the right to replace outgoing senior Ian Book. Coan will battle it out with junior Brendon Clark, sophomore Drew Pyne and freshman Tyler Buchner.

Coan was the Badgers’ starting quarterback until he injured his right foot in a preseason practice and subsequently underwent surgery. He returned to the club late in the season but didn’t receive any playing time with redshirt freshman Graham Mertz entrenched as the starter.

Coan guided Wisconsin to the Rose Bowl during a 2019 season in which he passed for 2,727 yards (third most in school history) to go with 18 touchdowns and five interceptions. The Badgers lost 28-27 to Oregon in Pasadena to finish 10-4.

Overall, Coan started 18 of 25 games played for Wisconsin and ranks 13th in school history with 3,278 passing yards. He had a 12-6 record as a starter, including 8-3 in Big Ten games.

Coan’s preseason injury opened the door for Mertz, who has passed for 1,108 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions in six games.-
