In May, Jake Golic transferred from Notre Dame to Cincinnati with the hopes of playing his final collegiate season with the Bearcats.
Unfortunately, a recurring health issue won’t allow that to happen at UC, or anywhere else for that matter.
According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the tight end, the son of former Notre Dame star and current ESPN personality Mike Golic, has been forced to end his collegiate playing career due to a chronic back issue. The Enquirer writes that “[w]ord from UC is that Golic was hurting after Sunday’s scrimmage, and that he decided to move on Sunday night.”
Because he had already graduated from Notre Dame, Golic (pictured, No. 88) would’ve been eligible to play immediately for Cincinnati in 2013.
