The father of Florida redshirt senior QB Malik Zaire said his son never considered returning to South Bend this fall because the trust between he and HC Brian Kelly had been broken.
"You know, shame on you the first time, shame on me the second time," Imani Zaire said. "… I don’t think Malik wanted to chance it because the relationship, I think, kind of soured a little bit." DeShone Kizer took over as the Irish’s starting quarterback after Zaire broke his ankle early on during the 2015 season. Though Kizer left this winter, becoming a second-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns, Zaire never seriously considered returning to the Irish. His father indicated that his son felt misled about his odds of starting twice, both during Zaire’s redshirt freshman year, when Everett Golson reclaimed his old job after an academic suspension, and following Zaire's return from injury last fall. Zaire worked with QB coach Dennis Gile to improve his footwork and mechanics this winter. The 6-foot, 225-pound southpaw had 816 passing yards and a 6/0 TD/INT ratio along with 324 rushing yards and two scores over his career at Notre Dame. Jun 9 - 3:59 PM
