Jake Golic heading to Cincinnati

Tight end Jake Golic became the second former Notre Dame player to decide to transfer to Irish coach Brian Kelly's former program.

Golic announced on his Twitter account Tuesday that he will transfer to Cincinnati, the school Kelly coached at for three years before coming to Notre Dame.

Golic wrote: "Can't thank the ND family enough for all the love and support over the last 4 years at ND. You have made it a pleasure to be Irish!

"With that being said, I am incredibly excited about the opportunity of attending the University of Cincinnati and being a #bearcat!"

The 6-foot-4, 245-pound Golic, who is the son of former Irish standout and co-host of ESPN's "Mike & Mike in the Morning" radio show Mike Golic, joins quarterback Gunner Kiel in leaving Notre Dame for Cincinnati.

Golic played in five games for Notre Dame and didn't have a reception. His career was slowed by injuries and the former U.S. Army high school All-American played behind Kyle Rudolph and former Bishop Dwenger star Tyler Eifert.
