This past Saturday, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish completed their 2013 regular season with a close 27-20 loss to the Stanford Cardinal. That game capped an 8-4 season, one year removed from the Irish making an appearance in the BCS National Championship Game.

However, between last season and this one, the Irish were missing one critical piece of their team, and that was QB Everett Golson who was suspended back in May for a violation of the student honor code. He even manned up to everything by admitting to Sports Illustrated that he had cheated on some school work.

On Tuesday, head coach Brian Kelly let ESPN.com know that Golson will be re-admitted to Notre Dame on Dec. 13, and you would expect that he’ll take the reins of the offense right back next season.

For this year, Golson went out to California and has been working out with quarterback guru, George Whitfield. This outcome is more or less what everyone expected when Golson originally left the South Bend campus.

Although enrolling back in this month, Golson will not be allowed to practice with the team as they prepare for their upcoming bowl appearance.
