Michael Dyer May Transfer From Arkansas State After Waiver Is Denied

Arkansas State running back Michael Dyer's transfer from Auburn was one of the most celebrated of the 2012 college football offseason, and not just because Dyer was the player who made a pivotal run to give Auburn the win in the 2011 BCS National Championship Game against Oregon. No, Dyer's destination, Arkansas State, was a bit of a surprise, even though he followed former Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn to the program.

And now Dyer may be transferring again: ArkansasSports360.com reports that Malzahn told the Scott Van Pelt Show on ESPN Radio that a waiver that would have made Dyer eligible to play in 2012 was denied and that Dyer will meet to discuss his future with the Red Wolves. The school has scheduled a press conference for 1 p.m. Central on Friday, likely to announce Dyer's decision.

Dyer would only have been eligible to play at Arkansas State in 2012 with a successful waiver appeal, but could still, in theory, transfer to an FCS or Division II school and be immediately eligible to play.
