Gunner Kiel on possible return to Notre Dame: 'I'm a Bearcat'
Cincinnati quarterback and Notre Dame transfer Gunner Kiel said, "I'm a Bearcat" when asked about the possibility of returning to Notre Dame.
Speculation that Kiel seemingly put an end to in a text message to the Cincinnati Enquirer on Sunday morning.
"I'm a Bearcat," Kiel told the paper.
Kiel transferred to Cincinnati from Notre Dame in April. But, as John Infante, a former NCAA compliance officer, wrote on Saturday night, Kiel could technically return to Notre Dame and play in 2013 without receiving a release from Cincinnati. Though it certainly doesn't look like that's what Kiel is planning.
Even if Kiel did want to return to Notre Dame, it's not a guarantee that Brian Kelly and the coaching staff would welcome him back after his decision to leave this spring.
