Notre Dame fans have an answer to the question they’ve been waiting for.
And it’s a good one.
Notre Dame’s Office of Residence Life will not suspend Michael Floyd for any games next season, according to a source close to the situation.
According to the source, Floyd will be eligible to be a full participant in both summer and fall football. Floyd is still suspended indefinitely by Irish head coach Brian Kelly, but the school will not require him to miss any time on the field in the fall.
In January, Floyd decided to return to school for his senior year instead of entering the NFL Draft, but he was arrested last month by campus police on suspicion of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence. He’s due back in court May 2nd.
Floyd, who was named captain at the team’s awards banquet in January, caught 79 passes for 1,025 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior, giving him 171 receptions for 2,539 yards and 28 touchdowns in three years for the Irish. Floyd is the school’s all-time leader in touchdown receptions and is second in career receptions and third in career receiving yards.
