Miami Hurricanes quarterback D’Eriq King will have season-ending surgery on his right throwing shoulder, coach Manny Diaz announced Monday on his weekly radio show.

Diaz told Miami’s 560 WQAM that freshman Tyler Van Dyke will be the starter for the Hurricanes (2-3, 0-1 ACC) moving forward.

King sustained the injury during a 38-17 loss to Michigan State on Sept. 18. He left in the third quarter after his shoulder was driven into the turf on a tackle by Spartans linebacker Quavaris Crouch.

After medical attention, he returned and stayed in the game and set Miami single-game records for completions (38) and attempts (59). He passed for 388 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

King has had a difficult run in terms of health. The sixth-year senior spent the offseason recovering from surgery on the torn ACL he sustained in the Cheez-It Bowl — a loss to Oklahoma State — in late December.

King transferred to Miami in 2020 after four seasons at Houston (2016-19).

Van Dyke started the Hurricanes’ most recent game, a 30-28 loss to visiting Virginia on Sept. 30. He completed 15 of 29 passes for 203 yards with one touchdown and also rushed for a score.

Miami returns to action Saturday at North Carolina (3-3, 2-3).
