Steve Elmer Will Forgo Final Year Of Athletic Eligibility

Feb. 16, 2016

University of Notre Dame junior offensive guard Steve Elmer will graduate in May and forgo his final year of athletic eligibility.

“Notre Dame is a special place that develops unique and talented people," said Irish head coach Brian Kelly. "Steve Elmer is such a person. He chose Notre Dame to earn a degree from the top University in the world and play football at the highest level. He’s accomplished both and so much more.

“This is an incredible professional opportunity for Steve. We as a coaching staff talk about how attending Notre Dame isn’t a four-year decision; rather it’s a 40-year investment into your life. This University provides so many different avenues toward success, whether that’s on the football field or in the boardroom, and Steve’s another outstanding example.”

Elmer (Midland, Mich.) started 30 of his 36 career games for the Irish. He is one of six Notre Dame players to start all 26 games over the last two seasons. Elmer finishes his Irish career with 27 consecutive starts.

Elmer, who holds a 3.52 grade-point average, will earn an undergraduate degree in economics from the College of Arts and Letters in just three and a half years.
