SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly will be back for a fourth season after leading the Fighting Irish to the national title game this past season.

Kelly issued a statement Saturday that after interviewing with the Philadelphia Eagles, he will remain as coach of the Irish.

Kelly said he has had thoughts about coaching in the NFL, but after much reflection and conversations with those closest to him he has decided to stay with the Irish.

Kelly led the Irish to a 12-1 record this past season and has an overall record of 28-11 in three seasons with Notre Dame.
