Notre Dame's Michael Floyd suspended indefinitely

Michael Floyd wasn’t booted out of school following a drunk driving arrest, but the Notre Dame wide receiver remains suspending indefinitely from the football team.

Irish coach Brian Kelly released a statement following today’s spring practice, saying that he isn’t ready to welcome back the team’s leading receiver from last season, not just yet anyway.

“While I am pleased with the work Michael has done in the last few weeks, there is still work to be done to convince me he has matured and that he is willing to accept the consequences of his actions, learn from them and become a better person," Kelly said in the statement, according to Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune. "Until that happens, he will not be an active member of our team."

Floyd dodged a major bullet when the school’s Res Life department did not suspend him. Floyd’s case will land him in court next month. Previously, he was busted twice for drinking as a minor. Floyd led the team with 79 receptions, 1,025 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.

Per the report, Floyd is not listed on the team’s official roster.
