"I knew in my heart I have the ability to be a Division I quarterback and it was a matter of finding a school for me," Doyle said. "It is the best opportunity for me to go and get education but to also play in my home state and for a program moving up."
UMass is making the transition from FCS to FBS next season. Doyle, who originally committed to N.C. State to play linebacker, rescinded that commitment during the season because he wanted to play quarterback.
In Molnar, he is hooking up with a familiar person.
"When I went up (to Notre Dame), I think it was two years ago with Albert Louis-Jean, I met him then," Doyle said. "Went back the following summer and I worked real close with him, basically the whole camp. Everything about him …he's a great coach. Every time I talk to him he's focused on winning and he has a passion."
"I don't see any reason on Feb. 1 I'm not signing there," Doyle said. "There is 100 percent chance of me signing. I going to play quarterback for a coach I'm excited to play for. Being from Massachusetts and going to University of Massachusetts and being able to say I was part of first class to go Division I at the school, it's a great opp. I could not pass it up."
Doyle completed 87 of 151 passes for 1,260 yards and 16 touchdowns as a senior.
