Notre Dame lineman Steve Elmer graduating early to pursue career

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame starting right guard Steve Elmer says he no longer wants to play football and he will skip his final year of eligibility and graduate in May a year early with a degree in economics to pursue his career.

The 6-5, 315-pound lineman from Midland, Michigan, released a letter Tuesday saying he has no problems with the coaching staff, no academic issues and no violations of team rules. He says he has been presented an “incredible opportunity” to pursue something in which he has a great interest with a great company. He didn’t specify what he will be doing other than saying it will be in the Washington, D.C., area.

Coach Brian Kelly says Elmer’s decision is an example of the different avenues of success Notre Dame offers.
