With Saturday’s 27-13 victory over Purdue it’s now crowded atop the all-time victories as a head coach list at Notre Dame.
The win was Notre Dame’s 105th under the direction of Brian Kelly which ties him for the most in program history. Obviously Rockne leads in national championships as Kelly still looks to join that exclusive club with the Irish.
When asked about it earlier in the week Kelly offered the following:
“I see it a little bit differently in a sense that I think it means longevity. I think it means stability. I think it means winning. But it doesn’t mean anything else relative to comparisons or who’s better. I think those things don’t really mean much to me. It just means I came here to do a job and that was to bring Notre Dame back to its its winning traditions and we’ve gotten there by being consistent and having stability. I think that’s what it means more than anything else to me.”
