SOUTH BEND, IN (TheSpread) – It looks as if Notre Dame will have a new starting quarterback for the 2015 season, as Everett Golson has elected to transfer from the school.

Golson graduated this semester, which opens the door for him to be able to transfer without having to sit out a season. He announced his decision on Thursday.

“I would like to thank everyone at Notre Dame for the opportunity to compete at the highest level of college football but most importantly to obtain my degree from one of the finest universities in the country,” Golson said in a prepared statement. “To all the Fighting Irish fans I want to thank you for the support over the past four years and let you know I truly love Notre Dame! To my former teammates, who I will miss tremendously, I wish much success in the future and will be your biggest fan from afar.”

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Notre Dame is currently listed at 16/1 to win the College Football Playoffs next season. Ohio State is the favorite to repeat at 7/2, while Alabama is listed at 7/1 to win.

Golson led the Irish to the BCS Championship Game as a freshmen, when he threw for 2,405 yards with 12 touchdowns. However, he missed his sophomore season to do a suspension for academic fraud. He returned last season and threw for 3,445 yards with 29 touchdowns, but also had 14 interceptions. Notre Dame will now turn to Malik Zaire, in all likelihood, to be their quarterback. Zaire was 21 of 35 passing last season for 266 yards with one touchdown. He also rushed for 187 yards and two scores.
