Brian Kelly Hire Officially Confirmed, Will Not Coach In Sugar Bowl

Cincinnati has confirmed what we have all known for hours: Brian Kelly is indeed headed to South Bend to be the new head coach at Notre Dame. The school also added that Kelly will not coach in the Sugar Bowl, when the Bearcats play Florida. Receiver Mardy Gilyard expressed some more bitterness over the news. 

"I heard everything I needed to know: 'I accepted the Notre Dame job,'" Gilyard said. "He went for the money. I'm fairly disgusted with the situation, that they let it last this long."

According to a press release from Notre Dame, Kelly will be officially introduced in a press conference Friday at 1:30 p.m.
