Notre Dame has confirmed to TV station WNDU that quarterback Everett Golson is no longer enrolled. The university stated that due to “federal and school privacy laws,” no further information could be released.

Two sources are reporting that Golson is no longer enrolled due to a Residence Life violation, according to Chicago Tribune reporter Brian Hamilton.

Rumors began swirling on social media early Saturday afternoon, and were confirmed late on Saturday night by Notre Dame.

Golson made waves in 2012 as the Irish’s starting quarterback, starting in 11 games and leading the team to an undefeated regular season and BCS National Championship game.

Golson’s departure leaves three scholarship players on the team’s roster: Tommy Rees, Andrew Hendrix and Malik Zaire. Quarterback Gunner Kiel decided to transfer from Notre Dame to Cincinnati before spring practice started.

Late on Saturday night, Golson announced via Twitter that he was no longer enrolled.
