Wisconsin QB Jack Coan announces decision to enter transfer portal
Jack Coan is hitting the transfer portal, the Wisconsin quarterback looking for a starting role ahead of his senior season.
A number of teams nationally should be interested in Coan, including in the B1G. Coan was originally recruited by a number of teams in the conference including Indiana and Rutgers.
The Scarlet Knights could be a landing spot potentially for Coan, who grew up an hour away from the program in Long Island and was a three-star recruit who seriously considered the Scarlet Knights at the time of his commitment to Wisconsin.
Thank you, Jack. pic.twitter.com/0w874uR51r

He’s a senior in terms of eligibility, having not played this season due to a foot injury that required surgery. Freshman Graham Mertz, the highest-ranked quarterback to ever commit to Wisconsin, started all six games for the Badgers this year in place of Coan.
And while Coan was available for the season’s final three games, he did not play.
He is a strong quarterback who had quite a bit of success at Wisconsin. In 2018, he had 2,727 passing yards with 18 touchdowns and five interceptions. He entered this season as a legitimate Heisman candidate.
His last start came in the Rose Bowl last season where he went 22-of-35 for 186 yards with a touchdown and an interception in a 28-27 loss to Oregon.
