Golson may return

Mon., May 27, 2013

Fighting Irish quarterback Everett Golson is out for at least the fall semester at Notre Dame, saying he has been suspended by the university for what he called poor academic judgment. Golson did not specify what he did to get suspended, and wrote that he understands his integrity could be in question. “But I want to reassure my supporters that through this experience I will return a better student athlete as well as a better individual,” he said. Golson’s abrupt exit leaves the Irish unsettled at a position they were hoping would be a strength in 2013. The most likely replacement is Tommy Rees, the 2011 starter who played key roles in four wins last season. Senior Andrew Hendrix and freshman Malik Zaire are also in the mix. – Associated Press
