It’s been a compelling 12 seasons with Brian Kelly heading the Notre Dame football program, but the bar has clearly been raised. Saturday’s 41-13 win over Wisconsin gave Kelly his 106th career victory with the Fighting Irish, passing Knute Rockne for the most wins in program history.
Kelly stated this week the record will mean less unless he’s able to one day deliver a national championship, but that doesn’t take away from the fact it’s still a remarkable feat, especially when you consider how much he changed his ways after the disaster of the 2016 season (4-8 record).
Kelly briefly discussed the topic during his postgame interview with Fox, stating that it was all about the “journey” and before being sprayed with Gatorade.
