Three days after being dismissed from the Louisville basketball team for violating a university of policy, former Cardinal forward Chane Behanan has been given his release to transfer to another school.

However, Louisville is not allowing Behanan to transfer to schools in the American Athletic Conference or the Atlantic Coast Conference.

“In accordance with NCAA Bylaw 13.1.1.3, the University of Louisville grants all institutions with the exception of Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) member schools permission to contact University of Louisville student athlete Chane Behanan,” according to a document that was obtained by SNY.TV.

“Chane has expressed an interest in pursuing opportunities at other institutions in the sport of Men’s Basketball. “In addition, Chane is currently subject to the American Athletic Conference (AAC) intra-conference transfer policy for the 2013-14 academic year.”

Adam Zagoria reports that Arizona State, Northwestern, Utah, Delaware, Oregon and Iowa State have all reached out and expressed interest in Behanan. He also claims that multiple programs in the AAC and the ACC have reached out, but were told he’d not be allowed to transfer there.

  2. Heaven forbid that this student gets help and his life together. The sad thing is he’s a Cincy kid. He’s probably going to seek help in his hometown but guess what…. U of L has made sure that he can’play at either school in his backyard for one solitary year. Another case of what have you done for me lately? This student athlete was instrumental in bringing 2 Big East Championships and one National Championship to Louisville. Why deliver a parting shot to this troubled young man? This is overkill. All you blue chippers out there should take note.

  3. GeorgiaFireThis transfer rule has been in effect for years and lots of college athletes have been subjected to it. It’s not something new.

    I’m pretty sure that is why Wiltjcher ended up at Gonzaga. Pretty sure Cal and UK have him limited schools to choose from.
