WNDU says the school could not comment further on the issue “due to federal and school privacy laws.”
Chicago Tribune reporter Brian Hamilton says Golson is no longer enrolled at the school due to an academic violation. Hamilton says the violation is believed to be something that will keep him out for the upcoming season.
Golson was a starter as a redshirt freshman for the Irish last season. He led the team to a 12-1 record and appearance in the national championship game.
Golson split time with Tommy Rees at quarterback, though he took most of the snaps. He threw for 2,405 yards, 12 touchdowns, six interceptions and rushed for six touchdowns last season.
Rees and Andrew Hendrix are likely to compete for the starting job if Golson is indeed gone. Highly-touted recruit Gunner Kiel would have been in competition for the job, but he elected to transfer to Cincinnati in April.Google+
