Kelly received a five-year deal from Notre Dame and will be introduced as coach in South Bend, Ind., today.

When quarterback Everett Golson returns to the practice field, coach Brian Kelly won't just hand him back the keys to the program. Kelly put Golson on notice Friday when he heaped praise on quarterback Malik Zaire and issuing a warning to the Irish. “I just want to caution everybody that we have a very good quarterback in Malik Zaire,” Kelly said. “I'm not ready to hand everything over to Everett. I love Everett, he played in the national championship game, but I also want to make sure we give everybody an opportunity to compete for that position.” No doubt Kelly is hoping to light a fire under both in saying the job is up for grabs, but it would be quite the upset if Zaire, who red-shirted in 2013, were to overtake Golson on the depth chart.

It was late last year and Brian Kelly had just taken over as the Notre Dame football coach. With the season still months away, Kelly showed up at halftime of a Fighting Irish basketball game to meet his new fans. Grabbing a microphone, he stirred thunderous applause with talk of quickly jump-starting a fallen program. "Get yourself ready," he proclaimed. Such bravado fit his personality. It also made sense because, after a successful run at Cincinnati, he ranked among the game's top coaches.

Extra, extra, you could have read all about it: Dec. 10, 2009. Notre Dame had just hired Brian Kelly away from Cincinnati. A blogger on The Times' website (take one guess) instantly pontificated: "Kelly, who has led Cincinnati to a 12-0 record this year, was so obviously the right choice. Notre Dame, the 'it' program, for so many years, finally hired a coach with the 'it' factor. " Notre Dame whiffed on three pitches in 2004, when it lost former assistant Urban Meyer to Florida.

It has already been a tough 2013 campaign for Notre Dame. The breaks, as George "Gipper" Gipp once said, have certainly been beating the boys. Irish football dropped to 0-2 with Wednesday's shocking letter-of-intent ruling defeat to UCLA. It was the second huge loss of the year after the Irish's humbling January defeat to Alabama in the BCS title game. UCLA shook down some of its own thunder when the NCAA   National Letter of Intent Appeals Committee released star recruit Eddie Vanderdoes to play immediately for the Bruins.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - Nick Saban and Brian Kelly dropped strong hints Saturday they would be coaching at Alabama and Notre Dame beyond Monday night's Bowl Championship Series title game. It's understandable the men leading the top two college football teams into the sport's top game would be considered candidates for several NFL vacancies. Saban, seeking his third national title in six years at Alabama, had the more adamant denial. "I don't have any unfinished business in the NFL," Saban said at Saturday's media day at Sun Life Stadium.

Cornerbacks Daylon McCutcheon and Brian Kelly consider themselves a tandem--"We take a lot of pride in that," Kelly says--and McCutcheon was quick to console Kelly after he dropped a potential interception in the fourth quarter of USC's 14-7 loss to Florida State on Saturday. "I just told him to keep his head up," said McCutcheon, who had an interception earlier in the fourth quarter. "I don't think one play loses a game. He did not lose the game with that play there.
