This is something you don’t see every day.
In a press release, Kansas head coach Charlie Weis announced that Dylan Admire has decided to forego his final two seasons of collegiate eligibility and give up football. The reason? Admire wants to concentrate on the student part of student-athlete.
“I am very proud of my time with the Kansas football program,” Admire said in a statement. “I am thankful for the opportunity I have had to be a part of the team and of the friendships I have gained. I look forward to supporting my teammates in Memorial Stadium this fall. Once a Jayhawk, always a Jayhawk.”
Admire, who will graduate this December, leaves the football program on good terms.
“I fully support Dylan’s decision,” Weis said. “He has been a model student-athlete and we wish him all the best.”
Admire played in 16 games the past two seasons, including two starts at center in 2013. He had been moved from the offensive line to tight end before his decision to retire from the sport.
