Coach Brian Kelly will be back with Notre Dame next season after leading the Fighting Irish to the BCS title game this past season.
Kelly, who interviewed with the Philadelphia Eagles last week, says Saturday that his interest with the NFL is over for now.
"Like every kid who has ever put on a pair of football cleats, I have had thoughts about being a part of the NFL. However, after much reflection and conversation with those closest to me, I have decided to remain at Notre Dame," Kelly said in a statement.
The remarks were the first comments by Kelly since news broke Wednesday that he had interviewed with the Eagles a day after the Irish were beaten 42-14 by Alabama in Miami.
Kelly has a 28-11 record in three seasons with Notre Dame, including 12-1 this past season.
But the damage of Kelly interviewing with the Eagles cost the Irish a prized recruit from Pennsylvania. Linebacker Alex Anzalone was expected to enroll early for classes at Notre Dame last week, but instead enrolled at Florida.
PGA Tour rookies Russell Henley and Scott Langley will play the final round together at the Sony Open. Henley two-putted from 30 feet for birdie on 18 for a 3-under 67. That gave him a share of the lead with Langley (65) in Honolulu. They set the 54-hole tournament record at 17-under 193 and had a three-shot lead over Tim Clark (66).
NASCAR's biggest free agent is off the market. Kyle Busch signed a multiyear deal with Joe Gibbs Racing in December, multiple sources told ESPN. Busch had only one Sprint Cup win last year for JGR.
