Brian Kelly Talks Quarterbacks

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly talked about his quarterbacks following the first day of spring practice

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly addressed the media following his team's first spring practice of the 2021 season. As expected, the Notre Dame quarterback position was a big topic of conversation.

Kelly talked about his quarterbacks following the practice and made clear this is an open competition.

To begin, Kelly was asked about Wisconsin graduate transfer Jack Coan, the presumed starter heading into the season. Kelly relayed conversations he's had with the veteran quarterback about making the transition from the Badgers to the Irish, and being himself.

That is followed by Kelly talking about over-looked sophomore quarterback Drew Pyne. Not in the video is Kelly talking about how Pyne is used to being counted out and dismissed, but that he expects the talented young signal caller to battle for the starting job.

Kelly then talked about talented freshman quarterback Tyler Buchner, noting that Buchner has a lot to learn after not playing this past season.

Not in this video is Kelly talking about how junior Brendon Clark will be very limited and not in the competition this spring due to his recovery from a knee surgery that happened in December.
