June 15, 2016

NOTRE DAME, Indiana – The following statements are from Notre Dame senior wide receiver Corey Robinson and head football coach Brian Kelly:

University of Notre Dame wide receiver Corey Robinson
“After much contemplation and prayer, I have decided not to continue playing football due to multiple concussions. I couldn’t have come to this difficult personal decision without the incredible support from so many within the Notre Dame football program. I am extremely thankful to Coach Kelly and his staff for the life-changing opportunity to play football at the greatest University in the world. I will continue to help our team as a student assistant and look forward to a great senior year.”

University of Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly
“This was an extremely tough decision for Corey. He’s such a committed kid to everything he does – whether it be academics, football, community service or campus leadership initiatives – that he wanted to finish his four-year career on the field. He was so excited to lead a group of young receivers this fall.

“While that won’t happen in the manner Corey initially intended, he will remain involved with the program on a day-to-day basis as a student assistant. He sets a remarkable example for all of our players — not only how to represent yourself on and off the field but also how working hard through adversity can lead to tremendous success.”
