LSU formally announced the hiring of Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly on Tuesday, saying they have agreed to a 10-year contract worth $ 95 million plus incentives.
The hiring of Kelly – who has led Notre Dame for the past 12 seasons and overshadowed Knute Rockne for career victories with the famous Fighting Irish – met Monday night in yet another magnificent coaching move in college football.
“Brian Kelly is the epitome of a winner,” said LSU Sports Director Scott Woodward. “He has built and maintained success with every program he has led, from several undefeated regular seasons and honors such as National Coach of the Year to (Division II) national titles and College Football Playoff spots. His credentials and consistency speak for themselves. . ”
