Kelly Announces Springmann’s Career Over


SOUTH BEND, IN. (WANE) – Former Bishop Dwenger standout Tony Springmann’s college football career is over. Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly made the announcement at his pre-training camp press conference on Friday afternoon.

The 6-foot-5, 300-pound defensive lineman missed the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL, before missing spring practices with an infection. Kelly says a lingering back issue is forcing Springmann to walk away from football.

Kelly added that the former Saint will stay involved with the Irish football program in some capacity. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
