Former Notre Dame QB Drew Pyne transferring to Arizona State
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - After learning earlier this month that Notre Dame quarterback Drew Pyne would enter the transfer portal, we’re now learning that he has a new home.
According to a report from ESPN’s Pete Thamel, Pyne’s next destination is Arizona State. Sources told ESPN that Pyne visited ASU over the weekend and clicked with first-year head coach Kenny Dillingham.
Pyne later confirmed the news on Twitter.
Pyne, who took over as the starter after Tyler Buchner suffered a season-ending injury during the team’s second game of the season, led the Irish Dame to an 8-2 record in his 10 starts —including a 4-1 record against Top 25 teams.
Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman told Pyne that the coaching staff would possibly look at taking a transfer quarterback. Freeman said he did not want Pyne to leave, but that he respected his decision to enter the transfer portal.
Pyne has three years of eligibility remaining.
