Brian Kelly released a statement about his future as the head coach of Notre Dame.
It's been a disappointing season for the Fighting Irish, and head coach Brian Kelly. After starting the season as the No. 10 team in the country, Notre Dame lost its opener to Texas, and never recovered.
A loss Saturday night to USC dropped the Irish to 4-8 on the season and rumors of Kelly's exit started to swirl.
Early Sunday morning, Kelly released a statement about his future with Notre Dame to quell any doubts that he would return to the Notre Dame sideline.
This is just the latest controversy surrounding Notre Dame. Just a few days ago, the Irish were forced to vacate wins from 2012 and 2013 after an NCAA investigation's findings.
It's been a rocky season for the Irish, and it ended much the same way the season started. Disappointing.
Should Kelly return? Should Notre Dame clear house and start over with a new coach? Well, if you believe Kelly, he'll be back at the helm of the Irish to start the 2017 season.
