With quarterback Everett Golson set to return to Notre Dame in 2014, another quarterback is looking for a chance to compete for playing time outside of South Bend. Andrew Hendrix will transfer to Miami Ohio, according to a report by ESPN.com Wednesday night.
Hendrix is a senior but has one final year of eligibility to use. In 2013 Hendrix was the back-up for Tommy Rees and appeared in six games. He attempted just 14 pass attempts for 56 yards in mostly mop-up duty for the Irish. He will join former Notre Dame offensive coordinator Chuck Martin, who is the new head coach of the RedHawks. His experience and knowledge of the offensive philosophies under Martin should help him make a push for playing time as early as possible for Miami.
Miami’s passing game was rough in 2013. The RedHawks had just eight touchdown passes and 1,491 passing yards all year long.
Hendrix will not have to sit out any time because he has already graduated from Notre Dame. Because he has a degree, he is exempt from the typical one-year wait that comes packaged with a transfer to another FBS school.
