Joel Auerbach/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — After leading the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to a BCS Championship game last season, quarterback Everett Golson is no longer on the team, the university told ESPN.com on Saturday night.

“Everett is not enrolled at the university. Federal law and our own polices preclude us from discussing specifics,” spokesman Dennis Brown said in to ESPN.com in an email.

The redshirt freshman completed 187-of-318 passes for 2,405 yards and 12 touchdowns last season before Notre Dame fell to Alabama in the title game.

The Chicago Tribune, citing two sources, reported that Golson is no longer enrolled at the university due to an academic violation, according to ESPN.com.

Head coach Brian Kelly will now have a big decision to make at the quarterback position.  Senior quarterback Tommy Rees has made 18 career starts for the team.

Junior Andrew Hendrix and Malik Zaire are also on the roster.
