The quarterback that started the majority of the games during last years undefeated regular-season run has been readmitted to Notre Dame.
Paul Browne, Notre Dame vice president for public affairs and communications, announced the decision with a one-sentence statement Friday.
Golson started 11 of 12 games last season, missing a victory over BYU in the regular season because of a concussion. He threw for 2,405 yards with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions and ran for 298 yards and a team-high six rushing touchdowns.
Golson completed 21 of 36 passes for 270 yards with a touchdown and an interception and ran for a TD in Notre Dames 42-14 loss to Alabama in the BCS championship game Jan. 7 in Miami.
Golson, who would have been a junior this year, was suspended for the fall semester because of what he called poor judgment on a test. The punishment became public May 25.
Golson will not take part in practices as the No. 25 Irish (8-4) prepare to play Rutgers (6-6) in the Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 28 in Yankee Stadium. He is not allowed to practice with the team until the semester officially ends on Dec. 20 or at the bowl site.
Notre Dames travel plans to New York are too close to when he could practice to allow him to get back on the field.
Golson worked out in Chicago and traveled to San Diego to work with quarterback coach George Whitfield Jr. during his banishment.
Coach Brian Kelly said he expects Golson to return as a better quarterback and student.
I think were going to get a better person and someone thats even more committed, Kelly said Dec. 8. Hes going to be so much more committed to being a better student, more committed to everything that he does. I think thats going to be a better quarterback at Notre Dame. I cant see a scenario for him not being better at the quarterback position because of that.
