Notre Dame QB Dayne Crist to Transfer to Kansas

Former Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist announced on Twitter Thursday morning that he will join the University of Kansas football program.

Crist visited Kansas and Wisconsin before deciding on the Jayhawks, where his former coach at Notre Dame, Charlie Weis, was hired to replace Turner Gill. Weis recruited Crist to Notre Dame and was his coach for two years in 2008 and 2009.

One of the country’s top recruits out of high school, Crist started the season as the Fighting Irish’s starting quarterback but was benched at halftime of the opener against South Florida when the Irish lost 23-16. He played only a handful of snaps behind Tommy Rees the remainder of the season and lost favor among the coaching staff.

Crist has already graduated, so he’ll be eligible to play for Kansas immediately in 2012 for a team looking to move from the Big 12 Conference cellar.
