Notre Dame football announced Wednesday the career of Corey Robinson is over.
In a statement tweeted by the athletics department, the senior wide receiver cited multiple concussions as the reason he will give up his final year of eligibility for the Fighting Irish.

Robinson, the son of Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame center David Robinson, caught 16 passes for 200 yards and one touchdown last season for Notre Dame.
He finishes his career with 65 catches for 896 yards and seven touchdowns.
The San Antonio native will remain part of the team as a student assistant this fall, but that won’t be the only thing occupying his time: In February, he was elected Notre Dame student body president.
Although Robinson did not have a major impact on the Fighting Irish last season, his exit further thins a receiving corps that already lots its top three players from 2015 in Will Fuller, Chris Brown and Amir Carlisle.
The team’s leading returning receiver is Torii Hunter Jr., who caught 28 passes for 363 yards and two touchdowns in 2015.
