Notre Dame lost a second quarterback, and this one led the team to the BCS championship game.
Everett Golson is no longer enrolled at the university, Notre Dame spokesman Dennis Brown confirmed in an email to The Journal Gazette late Saturday night.
South Bend’s WNDU was the first to report Golson no longer being enrolled.
If Golson does not return to Notre Dame, he will join Gunner Kiel as quarterbacks to leave the Irish. Kiel, who did not play as a freshman, transferred from Notre Dame to Cincinnati.
Golson went 10-1 as starter for the Irish last year. His only loss was in the national championship game to Alabama.
The 6-foot, 185-pound junior, who didn’t play as a freshman, threw for 2,405 yards with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also ran for 298 yards with six touchdowns.
The Irish now have seniors Tommy Rees and Andrew Hendrix along with freshman Malik Zaire as the remaining scholarship quarterbacks on the team.
