SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame running back Cierre Wood won't be back for his final year of eligibility with the Fighting Irish.
The 6-0, 215-pound senior from Oxnard, Calif., announced Monday he will enter the NFL draft, calling it a family decision. Wood was second on the team in 2012 in rushing with 742 yards on 114 carries, including rushing for 2 yards on four carries in a 42-14 loss to Alabama in the BCS title game.
He rushed for 2,447 yards on 450 carries in three seasons with the Irish, finishing seventh on Notre Dame's all-time list.
The announcement came two days after Brian Kelly said he would return as coach after talking with the Philadelphia Eagles about coaching the NFL team.
