QB Golson is back at Notre Dame
SOUTH BEND (AP) — Quarterback Everett Golson has been readmitted to Notre Dame after being suspended for the fall semester for what he termed “poor judgment on a test” after helping the Fighting Irish get to the national championship game a season ago.
Golson was officially readmitted Friday afternoon, said Paul Browne, Notre Dame vice president for public affairs and communications. Coach Brian Kelly previously had said he hoped Golson could practice with the Irish during bowl preparation, but last week said there wasn’t enough time because Golson isn’t eligible until Dec. 21 and the team leaves for the Pinstripe Bowl in New York City on Dec. 23.
