Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly appears to be a little disenchanted with transferring defensive end Jay Hayes.
Hayes announced that he’d be seeking a graduate transfer on Friday after four years in South Bend. On Saturday, Kelly addressed the media following a Notre Dame spring football practice and he took a shot at the departing defender.
“We gave him the opportunity to come back if he could meet the standards here,” Kelly said according to Sean Stires of WSBT.
Hayes then appeared to respond shortly after those comments hit Twitter, tweeting “What?” with six crying laughing emojis just minutes later.
As a graduate transfer, Hayes is eligible to play immediately after transferring. However, it appears his saga at Notre Dame is far from over after the drama on Saturday.
