Former Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen Bashes Brian Kelly For Benching DeShone Kizer

Jimmy Clausen is not shy about expressing his opinions on Twitter during Notre Dame games.

Tonight, the former Fighting Irish QB directed his words at head coach Brian Kelly. After seeing quarterback DeShone Kizer benched by Kelly in the third quarter after throwing two interceptions, Clausen took aim at Kelly.

His message? Kizer should leave school early, rather than return and play for Kelly who has too quick of a hook.

For what it's worth, backup Malik Zaire came in and did not fare any better. Notre Dame is clinging to a 10-9 lead over Stanford in the fourth quarter.
