Notre Dame has agreed with coach Brian Kelly on a six-year contract through the 2021 season, the school announced Friday.
Kelly previously had been signed through 2017 but reworked his agreement with Notre Dame after guiding the Irish to a 10-3 record and a Fiesta Bowl appearance this past season. He is 55-23 in six seasons at Notre Dame and has reached bowl games every year with the Irish. Kelly, 54, has a career record of 226-80-3 in 25 years as a head coach, including 149 wins since 2001, more than all but two FBS coaches (Bob Stoops and Urban Meyer).
