Kelly hopes Year 3 brings QB answer

August, 24, 2012
It's preview week here at, with yours truly contributing to the coverage today with a story on Brian Kelly's successful quarterback history. Will Year 3 at Notre Dame provide answers for Kelly in South Bend?

From the story:
It was fun for Grand Valley State, where Kelly won consecutive Division II national titles using a senior and a freshman, respectively, under center.

It was fun for Central Michigan and LeFevour, who spent two years under Kelly and finished his career atop almost every Mid-American Conference passing mark.

And it was fun for Cincinnati, where Kelly used seemingly every quarterback scenario imaginable -- once using five in a single season -- en route to two Big East titles in three years.

"I think that Coach Kelly does a great job of adjusting to what he has at the quarterback position, no matter what it is," former Bearcats quarterback Zach Collaros said. "If it's a drop-back guy, [or] a guy that can move around, I think he can adjust to game plans and exploit a team's weaknesses."
