LSU is expected to hire Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly as its next head coach. The news comes as the latest shock to the college football world and just a mere day after USC hired Lincoln Riley away from Oklahoma.
“LSU is expecting to hire Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly as the school’s next head coach,” Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel tweeted on Monday night. “An announcement could come as early as tomorrow.”
Kelly has been the head coach for the Fighting Irish for 12 seasons, turning them into a constant in the College Football Playoff conversation. He’s been to two playoff semifinals and appeared in the 2012 national championship. There has been nothing but consistency at Notre Dame with Kelly, winning at least 10 games over the past five years.
Before Notre Dame, Kelly was at Cincinnati, where he went 34-6 overall. He has never coached south of the Mason-Dixon line.
