Former Notre Dame quarterback Jack Coan showed up for the Indianapolis Colts’ rookie mini camp and officially signed his free agent quarterback.
The undrafted rookie’s signed his contract at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center, along with 25 other first-year Colts. Coan’s dad Mike reported on Instagram that his son will wear No. 3 for Indianapolis.
Coan, who in January broke a Fiesta Bowl record with the Irish in passing for 509 yards, was projected to go as high as the sixth round in the NFL Draft last month. The Colts snatched him up immediately after the draft was complete.
A Suffolk County Hansen Award winner and a 2017 graduate of Sayville High School, Coan started a combined 31 games for Wisconsin and Notre Dame during college, throwing 48 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. In his only season with Notre Dame in 2021, he led the Irish to an 11-2 record, narrowly losing to Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl.
As a Colt, Coan will have the opportunity to learn behind former league MVP Matt Ryan while vying for a back-up position against an otherwise unproven quarterback room.
