The dating pool for athletes has gotten a little smaller.

Kristin Cavallari, the ex-wife of former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, announced today that she is "done" with athletes.

She also admitted that she previously dated Matt Leinart, a former college football star.

The former MTV star dated Leinart when she was a senior in high school.  Leinart was a senior at USC.

"Matt is the nicest person on the planet," he said on the Back to the Beach podcast.

"He's such a nice guy. But yeah, I dated him when I was 18, second half of my senior year.

He was five years my senior at USC. He was on top of the world that year. "I was very excited about it, frankly, like, no chill. But it was a big deal for me."

Cavallari said that Leinart was the first quarterback he dated.  Not anymore though.

"Oh my god, my first quarterback," he said.  "I dated a few athletes in my day, I would say. Here's my deal.

I dated a hockey player. For me, where I am in my life now, it's more about the schedule.

So baseball, they All the time is gone. Basketball, they go all the time. Football is reasonable. Hockey, they go a lot, but it's doable.

"To be honest, I don't want to say anything I regret, but I don't think I want to date another athlete. I did. I want to leave it in the past."

"To be honest, I don't want to say anything I regret, but I don't think I want to date another athlete. I did. I want to leave it in the past."

I'm sure Matt doesn't appreciate it. His wife doesn't. Let it be and move on. I hope  She will soon be dating another athlete."  wrote a fan.

One fan said, "All she wants is attention. She wants to be a Kardashian." Another fan joked, "Glad I could finally put that secret out of my head.

I was going crazy trying to figure out who Kristen Cavallari was dating in high school. Now, just L.C."  The puzzle has to be solved." Best of luck, Kristin...
