SOUTH BEND, Ind., May 26 (UPI) -- Quarterback Everett Golson, who helped lead Notre Dame to an undefeated regular season and a shot at the national title, has left school, a spokesman confirmed.

Notre Dame spokesman Dennis Brown confirmed Saturday Golson is no longer enrolled, but Brown declined to say more, citing privacy restrictions, multiple media reports indicated.

Golson was a redshirt freshman last season when he started 11 regular season games for the Fighting Irish -- throwing for 2,405 yards, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions, while rushing for 298 yards and six TDs. Notre Dame finished the regular season 12-0 but lost to Alabama 42-14 in the National Championship game.

Golson's departure, combined with the decision by Gunner Kiel to transfer to the University of Cincinnati, leaves the starting quarterback position up for grabs for seniors Tommy Rees and Andrew Hendrix and early enrolled freshman Malik Zaire.
