Report: Tyler Van Dyke is expected to remain at Miami under coach Mario Cristobal
Miami star quarterback Tyler Van Dyke is not expected to enter the transfer portal following the Hurricanes’ coaching change, according to a report.
That’s per 247Sports’ Andrew Ivins, who cites a conversation with Van Dyke’s father. According to Ivins, Van Dyke will remain a Miami player for 2022 if new coach Mario Cristobal wants him there.
Just talked with Tyler Van Dyke’s father. I don’t get the sense that the Miami QB wants to explore options in the transfer portal. Only way that would happen is if Mario didn’t want Van Dyke, which is a scenario that would be hard to see playing out.

Van Dyke is one of the most promising quarterbacks in the country heading into the 2022 season. He became Miami’s starter mid-way through the season, but was more productive than original starter D’Eriq King.
There was some uncertainty around Van Dyke’s status as both coach Manny Diaz (fired) and offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee (SMU) have both departed this offseason.
Instead, it appears Miami will get to build off its offensive success over the back half of the 2021 season while bringing in a new head coach and offensive staff.
Van Dyke threw for 300+ yards and 3+ touchdowns in each of Miami’s final six games this season. The Hurricanes went 4-2 over that stretch and finished the year with a 7-5 record.
He’s expected to play in Miami’s bowl game against Washington State on New Year’s Eve.
