Everett Golson admits to cheating at Notre Dame, discusses future

Everett Golson opens up on cheating, his future
Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples talks with quarterback Everett Golson about his dismissal from Notre Dame and his future college football plans. For the full exclusive story check out this week's SI.

SAN DIEGO -- Everett Golson screwed up. The former and likely future Notre Dame quarterback will be the first to admit that.

As a redshirt freshman, Golson led the Fighting Irish to a 12-0 record and a berth in the national title game. Less than five months after a 42-14 loss to Alabama on Jan. 7, school officials dismissed Golson for a flagrant violation of Notre Dame's honor code. He was told he could reapply for the 2014 spring semester. If the school lets him back in -- which Golson expects will happen -- he can return to South Bend in January and rejoin the Fighting Irish.

Last week, Golson met with SI to discuss why he was thrown out of Notre Dame and why he has decided to return to South Bend instead of playing juco ball this season and transferring to another school in 2014. Golson also talked about working out for the past two months with private quarterback coach George Whitfield Jr., which he believes will make him a better player in his second stint at Notre Dame.

For more on Golson, including his parents' reaction to the dismissal and Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly's take on his quarterback in exile, pick up a copy of this week's Sports Illustrated.
