Report: Head coach Brian Kelly will remain at Notre Dame

After interviewing with the Philadelphia Eagles, Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly has decided to stay in South Bend, SI.com's Pete Thamel is reporting.

Kelly began talking with the Eagles about replacing Andy Reid shortly after his Fighting Irish lost the BCS National Championship Game to Alabama on Monday. He earned coach of the year honors for the second time after leading Notre Dame to a 12-0 record.

In 22 years as a college head coach, Kelly has compiled a 199-67-2 record with Grand Valley State, Central Michigan, Cincinnati and Notre Dame. His resume includes two Division II national championships and two Big East titles.
