Floyd remains suspended, statements released

After a ResLife ruling allowed Michael Floyd to continue his education at Notre Dame and avoid university suspension from school or football, Floyd and head coach Brian Kelly released statements today after news broke late yesterday:

From Kelly:

“Michael has shared with me the outcome of his hearing with our office of Residence Life, and I’m happy that he has the opportunity to move forward both academically and athletically here at Notre Dame. However, this does not change the fact that Michael is still a suspended member of our football team. As I said last month, part of the reinstatement process to our team involved conclusions to the legal and the university disciplinary matters. Another part was behavior modification, and improved decision making skills. While I have been pleased with the progress Michael has made the last few weeks, there is still work to be done to convince me that he has matured and that he is going to accept the consequences of his actions, learn from them, and become a better person. Until that happens, he will not be an active member of our team.”

From Floyd:

“I’ve met with office of Residence Life, and while I don’t plan to discuss the details, I’m grateful that I still have a chance to earn my degree from Notre Dame and be a member of the football team. I know that I still need to meet requirements set by the university and Coach Kelly, and that I have a lot of work to do on that and to prove that I’ve grown from this experience. I’m sorry again for the poor decisions that I’ve made and for letting so many people down.”
