Kelly coaches Irish to BCS title game
Former Grand Valley State University head football coach Brian Kelly has coached the undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish to the BCS National Championship game. Kelly won two national championships during his time in Allendale, with an overall record 118-35-2 from 1991-2003. After moving on to coach at Central Michigan University and the University of Cincinnati, Kelly became the head coach at Notre Dame University in 2010. The top-ranked Fighting Irish are 12-0 this season behind a defense that has allowed only 10.3 points per game, second best in the nation. Notre Dame will have its work cut out against an opponent from the SEC, a conference that has taken home the National Championship for six consecutive seasons. Notre Dame will take on the winner of the SEC Championship game between No. 2 University of Alabama and No. 3 University of Georgia, which is Saturday at 4 p.m.
