Irish QB Gunner Kiel to transfer

Notre Dame quarterback Gunner Kiel intends to transfer, a source confirmed to ESPN.com.
The website Irish Sports Daily earlier reported that Kiel would transfer.
Notre Dame had no comment. A message left for Kiel's father, Kip, was not returned.
A four-star quarterback from the class of 2012, Kiel drew notoriety for his recruitment after defecting from both Indiana and LSU.
The Columbus (Ind.) High School product redshirted this past fall during the Fighting Irish's run to the Discover BCS National Championship. He is the nephew of former Notre Dame quarterback Blair Kiel, who died last Easter at age 50.
Redshirt freshman Everett Golson won the starting job last fall, with junior Tommy Rees seeing extensive playing time, too.
During his most meeting with reporters on Jan. 5, Kiel said the thought of transferring had not crossed his mind.
"It honestly hasn't," Kiel said during media day at Sun Life Stadium. "I've been more focused on the season and been more focused on school and other things that are more important to me."
Redshirt sophomore Andrew Hendrix was ahead of Kiel on the depth chart last year as well, and Notre Dame welcomed in another signal caller this semester in early enrollee Malik Zaire.
