Kansas Jayhawks Football: Jake Heaps and Darrian Miller To Transfer

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star has reported that both quarterback, Jake Heaps, and running back, Darrian Miller, are transferring from the Kansas Jayhawks football program.

Head coach, Charlie Weis had high hopes when he brought in both Heaps, and Dayne Crist to be the quarterbacks that turned the program around. Heaps was a transfer from BYU who had tremendous upside. We saw the loss of Heaps coming, as he lost a one-on-one competition to sophomore QB, Montell Cozart back in the spring.

Darrian Miller, a former Blue Springs High School standout, had been released from the team in 2012 for what Weis called “personal reasons”. Miller spent the next season in the ranks of Juco and was poised to come back to Kansas as the featured back. Well, again Miller is leaving for “personal reasons” but this time it’s his decision.

The Kansas football program has fallen to deepest cellars of college football with promises of them climbing back up. Since Weis has arrived, the Jayhawks are just 4-20, one game better than Turner Gills 3-19 record.

With that, Weis has had so many transfers in-and-out of the program that it’s hard to keep up.

The 2014 season does still have some hope, as they return a total of 15 starters (8 on offense, 7 on defense) but they must do it with a Sophomore quarterback and no identity on offense.

Charlie Weis is certainly on the hot seat with KU, especially if he posts another horrid record and loses by an average margin of 27.6 points.
