Notre Dame WR Robinson decides to end career

Notre Dame wide receiver Corey Robinson has decided to stop playing football for the Irish as a result of suffering multiple concussions, the school announced Wednesday.

“After much contemplation and prayer, I have decided not to continue playing football,” Robinson said in a statement. “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 (Brian) Kelly and his staff for the life-changing opportunity.”

Robinson, 21, will continue to assist the team as a student assistant. Kelly praised Robinson’s impact on the team both on and off the field. Robinson, whose father is Basketball Hall of Famer David Robinson, was elected student-body president in February.

“This was an extremely tough decision for Corey,” Kelly said in a statement. “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.

“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.”
