The Stanford football program will be without quarterback Keller Chryst for the 2018 season.
Over the weekend, the veteran signal-caller announced that he will be transferring from the program for his final year of eligibility after he graduates in June.
As a graduate transfer, Chryst will be eligible to play immediately.
“After four seasons at Stanford, I have decided to transfer for my fifth year of eligibility when I graduate in June,” Chryst wrote on social media. “Thank you to Stanford University, the Stanford Football program, and especially my teammates for the experiences here. Looking forward to what the future holds!”
Chryst entered the 2017 season as the starting Cardinal quarterback, but he lost the job to redshirt sophomore K.J. Costello midway through the year.
During his time at Stanford, Chryst threw for 1,926 yards, 19 touchdowns and six interceptions.
Chryst comes from a football family, with his uncle Paul Chryst serving as head coach of the Wisconsin Badgers football team and his father, Geep Chryst, serving as tight ends coach for the Denver Broncos.
There is no word on where he will transfer.
