Notre Dame's Kelly says he'll 'absolutely' be back next year

USC defensive back Adoree' Jackson makes like a superhero after breaking free of several tackles for a big gain against Notre Dame in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 26, 2016.

"One side of me says, 'look, this is my 25th year, I know what I'm doing,"' Kelly said. "So you are going to have to answer those questions [about job secruity] when you have a year like this".

Weis stayed on as coach for 2008 and 2009 before back-to-back 6-6 regular seasons led Notre Dame to dismiss him.

Now they get one more game out of their superhero. Two opponents, Duke and Michigan State, finished a combined 7-17.

A double-overtime loss Week 1 at Texas set the tone for the season. And kicking a field goal on fourth down instead of going for it in the fourth quarter against Navy resulted in Notre Dame not getting the ball back in that 28-27 loss.

Instead, Charlie Strong's on the way out of Austin. The 31 defeats are now the most by a Fighting Irish head coach, eclipsing the 100-30-2 (.765) ledger during Lou Holtz's 11 seasons from 1986-96.

Brian Kelly was asked about that moment after the game.

Hours later, Yahoo Sports reported that Kelly had reached out through representatives to explore coaching options outside Notre Dame. Brown caught TD passes for the Irish, who finished their dismal season with a series of mistakes and poor sportsmanship. So, despite his shortcomings and inadequacies that I see and not to mention investigation and forfeit of wins in his only season that I find worthy of fame, Kelly will most likely be back to try to turn the Irish around, and Irish fans had better put their eggs in that basket for the sake of the program. Fertitta was ejected from the game after being called for targeting on the play.

Gov. McCrory must end games with NC election outcome
Democratic Party. "This is nothing but a last-ditch effort from Governor McCrory to delay and deny the results of this election". The governor signed a voter ID law in 2013 which did not survive a federal court ruling earlier this year.

After a 10-1 start to the 2015 season, the Irish have lost 10 of their last 14 games.

Earlier this week, the NCAA ordered Notre Dame to vacate all of its wins from the 2012 and '13 football seasons in an academic misconduct case. Six players were arrested in one night this summer, in two separate incidents.

LOS ANGELES The hurdle came without breaking stride.

Brian Kelly gives Jerry Tillery an earful Saturday in the loss to USC.

Officials missed that one. During interviews, Kelly was asked if he wants to be Notre Dame's head coach next year. Kelly could make a jump to the National Football League, if there's interest.

Videographer Declan Sullivan died when the scissor lift he was on during Notre Dame practice collapsed because of high winds. "I'll be back, absolutely", he said.

The school announced a crowd 72,402 on Saturday against Notre Dame, the smallest for a game involving the Fighting Irish at the Coliseum since 1986. USC only led, 10-7, late in the second quarter. "To stick with us throughout this whole season and the prior season, just showing love and support, it's just unbelievable". "It just hurts even more". "They're all correctable through experience and our offseason program".

"I think I kinda baited him into it", Harris said. After finishing 2016 4-8, Notre Dame is in desperation of returning to glory.
