Former Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson announced he will return to the Fighting Irish.
According to an ESPN report Saturday, Golson, who was kicked off the team for academics last spring, will return to South Bend in 2014. He will most likely participate in spring practices and in the annual spring game.
"I will be returning in the spring, that’s pretty much it," Golson said. "I’ve been working out, keeping my head up. I’ve had a little adversity, but I’ve learned you can’t sit down and just take that. You got to pick yourself back up and keep going forward and continue doing what you were doing, and everything is going to work itself out in the end."
Although Michigan will not face Golson against Notre Dame in 2013, the Wolverines will see him one last time Sept. 16, 2014. Notre Dame discontinued its rivalry with U-M last fall, and 2014 will mark the final meeting between the two teams for the foreseeable future. Notre Dame downed Michigan 13-6 in 2012.
Golson led Notre Dame to the 2013 BCS National Championship, where the Fighting Irish lost to Alabama 42-14.
