Notre Dame has issued statements from head coach Brian Kelly and wide receiver Michael Floyd regarding Floyd's early AM arrest Sunday on suspicion of DUI.

The following statements are from Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly and junior wide receiver Michael Floyd:

University of Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly

“I’ve spoken to Michael Floyd and his mother and, in light of what took place this past weekend, I let him know he has been suspended indefinitely from football team-related activities. Football needs to take a backseat at the moment while Michael gets his life in order, and while I don’t know when Michael will be reinstated, it will not happen until Michael demonstrates he has successfully modified his behavior and the legal and university disciplinary matters have run their respective courses.

"What’s most important right now is Michael focusing on maturing and developing more as a person while working to improve his decision-making processes.”

“First of all, I want to apologize to my family, friends, teammates, coaches, the University and the extended Notre Dame family for my behavior this weekend. I understand the gravity of the decision I made and how it could have had catastrophic effects on myself and others. I’ve talked to Coach Kelly and I accept the decision he made.

"I absolutely recognize that I have many things to work on to become a better person and will need to regain the trust of all whom I have hurt within my immediate family and the Notre Dame family. I fully intend to spend the immediate future improving myself to become a better member of our community.”
