Brian Kelly announced Wednesday that two more scholarship players will leave the Notre Dame football program, effective immediately.
Senior tight end Tyler Luatua has been granted a medical disqualification and will no longer play college football. He will remain at Notre Dame on scholarship.
"It's always a difficult decision for a player to step away from football," said Kelly in a statement. "Most importantly, Tyler will still have an opportunity to earn his degree."
Luatua played in 10 games as a true freshman in 2014. In February of 2016, Luatua announced he would transfer to BYU, but later decided to stay in South Bend.
Luatua was well behind Durham Smythe, Alize Jones and Nic Weishar on the post-spring tight end depth chart.
It was also announced that sophomore offensive lineman Parker Boudreaux would seek a transfer after one season with the Irish. The Florida native preserved a year of eligibility in 2016 as a true freshman after coming to Notre Dame rated as one of the top offensive guards in the country.
"We thank Parker for his work, dedication and commitment to our program over the last year and wish him nothing but the best moving forward," said Kelly in a statement.
