Quarterback Everett Golson, who led Notre Dame to last season's BCS Championship Game, says he plans to return to the Irish next spring.

Golson was suspended for the fall semester for "poor academic judgment," according to a statement he released earlier through the school.

“I will be returning in the spring, that's pretty much it,” Golson said Saturday to television station WPDE of Myrtle Beach, S.C.

“I've been working out, keeping my head up. I've had a little adversity, but I've learned you can't sit down and just take that -- you got to pick yourself back up and keep going forward and continue doing what you were doing and everything is going to work itself out in the end.”

Golson will still have two years of eligibility left, starting with the 2014 season.

Coach Brian Kelly has named Tommy Rees the starting quarterback entering this season.
