Media outlets in South Bend are reporting that Notre Dame's head football coach, Brian Kelly, is staying at the university.

Both WSBT-TV and WNDU-TV reported on their Facebook pages that Kelly would remain in South Bend. Kelly had been in talks with the Philadelphia Eagles of the NFL about thier head coaching vacancy.

“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.

“This decision was motivated purely by my love for Notre Dame and the entire Fighting Irish community, the young men I have the great fortune to coach, and my desire to continue to build the best football program in the country.
