Kelly set to return to Notre Dame next season
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly will be back for a fourth season after leading the Fighting Irish to the national title game this past season.
Kelly issued a statement Saturday that after interviewing with the Philadelphia Eagles, he will remain as coach of the Irish.
Kelly said he has had thoughts about coaching in the NFL, but after much reflection and conversations with those closest to him he has decided to stay with the Irish.
Kelly led the Irish to a 12-1 record this past season and has an overall record of 28-11 in three seasons with Notre Dame.
new football scheduling model
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — The Atlantic Coast Conference has launched a football scheduling model for the arrival of Pittsburgh and Syracuse this fall.
The league says each ACC team will play an eight-game schedule, with six coming within its division. Of the two cross-divisional games, one will be against the same scheduling partner every season and the other will rotate every year.
The Atlantic Division members will host their primary partners from the Coastal Division this fall, while the Coastal teams will host games with their rotating cross-divisional opponents. As a result, six games will return to the same site as last year’s matchup.
Pittsburgh heads to the Coastal, Syracuse to the Atlantic and the two will play every year as primary partners in the 14-team league.
The ACC releases team schedules next month.
