Brian Kelly Sent Late Night Breakup Text to Notre Dame Players Saying He’s Leaving For LSU

Former head coach Brian Kelly from Notre Dame is taking his head coaching talents to LSU.

It’s not only the beginning…but a fresh start for Kelly, who has over ten years leading the Notre Dame.

Brian Kelly has left Notre Dame to become the next head football coach at LSU.

LSU confirmed the stunning move Tuesday morning, announcing that Kelly has agreed to a 10-year, $95 million deal that also includes incentives. The SEC powerhouse will officially introduce Kelly at a news conference Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET.

“I could not be more excited to join a program with the commitment to excellence, rich traditions, and unrivaled pride and passion of LSU Football,” Kelly said in a statement released by the school. “I am fully committed to recruiting, developing, and graduating elite student-athletes, winning championships, and working together with our administration to make Louisiana proud. Our potential is unlimited, and I cannot wait to call Baton Rouge home.”

Although Kelly is ready for the new start, he’s content knowing Notre Dame football players will always be special in his heart.  He let them know that with a light night breakup text telling him he’s sorry, they learned he was leaving them from social media, but it is true he is never coming back.

One of his assistants was actually at a recruit’s house when the news came down, so you know that didn’t come across too well.

Kelly last week addressed the possibility of leaving Notre Dame for another job, telling reporters, “No. I mean, [Pittsburgh Steelers coach] Mike Tomlin had the best line, right? Unless that fairy godmother comes by with that $250 million check, my wife would want to take a look at it first. I’d have to run it by her.”

I guess his wife looked at that $100 million LSU check and started packing her Gucci bags.
