In addition to a solid on-field performance by the Fighting Irish this afternoon, Notre Dame fans received great news: the school is set to announce its contract extension with head coach Brian Kelly.
Biggest news of the day: Brian Kelly’s contract extension set to be announced post game.

Kelly flirted with the NFL this offseason following a loss in the BCS National Championship Game to Alabama — giving him an extension and assumed raise will likely aid Notre Dame in retaining him for the foreseeable future.
It is believed that Swarbrick will announce the details of the contract — at least some of them — once the Temple game ends.
Kelly, prior to 2013, has a 28-11 record while coaching at Notre Dame.
