Notre Dame Quarterback Transferring to UCF
Since 2007, financial advisor Robert Gill has served as president of New Jersey's Epic Wealth Management, where he oversees a team of account managers and financial advisors responsible for providing services, such as life insurance and estate planning. Beyond his professional pursuits, New Jersey's Robert Gill is a passionate fan of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team.
After a season in which he was ousted as the team's starting quarterback, Brandon Wimbush recently announced he was transferring from the University of Notre Dame to the University of Central Florida (UCF) for the 2019 season. Wimbush made the announcement on Instagram and thanked the school for the opportunities he received, while also expressing excitement at the possibility of playing for UCF.
The Teaneck, New Jersey, native started 12 games during the 2017 season, but was replaced after only three games in 2018 by Ian Book, who led the Fighting Irish to a perfect 12-0 regular season record, as well as an entry in the College Football Playoff. He concludes his stint at Notre Dame with 20 touchdowns, 12 interceptions, 2,606 passing yards, and 1,156 rushing yards. Wimbush is expected to compete with sophomore Darriel Mack Jr. for the starting quarterback position at UCF.
