"I talked to coach Kelly last night about it and he reiterated it that he still wanted me, but he knew from previous talks that I was leaning toward other options, being able to utilize two awesome degrees from Notre Dame," Cwynar told the Tribune on Tuesday.
"I just don’t think staying around and taking one credit in summer and nine in the fall is a good use of my time. I loved my experience here but I just think it's time for me to move on and pursue other things."
"I just think in my mind it was time to move on. It's a pretty complex decision with a lot of dynamics. Playing in Solder Field (in 2012), playing in Ireland. At the same time, I couldn't imagine myself coming back and not being able to pursue anything academically. I just really think it's time to move on."
