At the end of a tough week for Notre Dame, Brian Kelly provided the Irish luck at last.
The third-year coach, who interviewed for the Philadelphia Eagles job, announced Saturday that he is staying in South Bend, Ind.
"This week, I had an incredible opportunity to speak with one of the premier organizations in sports about becoming their head coach," Kelly said in the statement released by Notre Dame. "Like every kid who has ever put on a pair of football cleats, I have had thoughts about being a part of the NFL. However, after much reflection and conversation with those closest to me, I have decided to remain at Notre Dame."
Eagles - conducting "coaching search" as if they have Chianti managing that organization.
