Thomas Sirk is transferring for his final season.
Duke head coach David Cutcliffe announced former starting quarterback Thomas Sirk will transfer. After five years with the Blue Devils, Sirk will play his sixth season of eligibility with another team.
Cutcliffe released the following statement about Sirk's decision:
“First and foremost, we are 100 percent supportive of Thomas and his decision to complete his eligibility at another school,” Cutcliffe said. “I’ve said it many times before: Thomas is an incredible young man. He’s conscientious, dedicated and what I would consider the ultimate teammate due to his selflessness and leadership qualities. Thomas loves Duke. He and I have had great discussion regarding this decision, and his love for this university and everything it represents is what made this decision so difficult for him.
As Duke's starting QB in 2015, Sirk threw for 2,625 yards and 16 touchdowns. He missed the 2016 season with an injury.
Sirk suffered through three torn Achilles tendons during his time with the Blue Devils. The oft-injured quarterback graduated from Duke in May of 2016 with a degree in political science.
