OL transferring from Kansas to Richmond

Chad Kolumber

The transfer train running in and out of Lawrence continues running this week, with a member of Kansas’ defense deciding to take his leave of the Jayhawks.

According to the Lawrence Journal-World, offensive lineman Chad Kolumber recently decided to transfer out of the football program.  The paper notes that several media outlets in  Virginia have reported that Kolumber is transferring to Richmond.

Kolumber himself tweeted a photo of his acceptance packet to the school over the weekend.

As the Spiders are a Div. 1-AA (FCS) program, Kolumber, who played in five games as a redshirt freshman last season, will be eligible to play immediately.

As noted by the Journal-World, Kolumber becomes the 23rd player with eligibility still remaining who has left the program since Charlie Weis took over for Turner Gill.  The Jayhawks have also added at least five players who have transferred into the program, three of whom will be eligible to play immediately.

    Every coaching change means players leave or transfer but losing twenty-three players? What’s going on over there in Kansas…

    Weis is an arrogant, belittling bully. Don’t blame the boys for bailing. He’s toast in three years.

    @JMB795:

    U may be right, but that begs the question: “Why have so many players transferred to KU…including three who were recruited by him & played for him @ ND?”

    They’re transferring to KU because Weis is a big softie. He couldnt win at ND, what makes anyone think he can win at KU?

    Interesting. Kolumber looks like he’ll get to play against a team (Liberty) coached by his former HC at Kansas (Turner Gill) in 2013 and the year after.
