June 4, 2012

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas football head coach Charlie Weis announced here Monday afternoon that linebacker Jake Farley will transfer. Farley, 6-foot-1 220-pound sophomore from Cedar Falls, Iowa, will complete his collegiate career at the University of Northern Iowa where he will play for his father, Mark.

“Jake met with me on Friday and told me he would like to finish his career playing for his dad,” said Weis. “How could I debate that one? On behalf of the KU program, I wish Jake success and happiness as he returns home to be with his family.”

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Kansas both as a member of the football team and academically,” said Farley. “I believe Coach Weis has really made a positive impact on the direction of the football program, but I have decided I want to have the chance to play for my dad and have my family watch me play. I appreciate the opportunity I had at KU and wish the team all the best.”
