ESPN Report: Golson plans to transfer

18 Comments

With finals nearly finished and Everett Golson on track to earn his degree in the coming weeks, ESPN’s Brett McMurphy broke the news that Irish fans had to be dreading.

Per McMurphy, Golson plans to transfer and play out his eligibility elsewhere.

The story is still developing. There’s no comment out of anyone inside Notre Dame nor in Golson’s camp.

But after sharing time with Malik Zaire this spring—and exiting the Blue-Gold game looking like the team’s No. 1 quarterback—Golson appears unwilling to compete for the starting job, or share snaps with Zaire.

There’ll be plenty more to come. But the story of the spring was Brian Kelly finding a way to keep both quarterbacks on campus. One major media outlet is reporting that it won’t happen.
