"This week, I had an incredible opportunity to speak with one of the premier organizations in sports about becoming their head coach," said Kelly.
"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.
"This decision was motivated purely by my love for Notre Dame and the entire Fighting Irish community, the young men I have the great fortune to coach, and my desire to continue to build the best football program in the country.
"We still have a lot of work to do and my staff and I are excited about the challenges ahead."
Fighting Irish fans can relax in knowing Kelly will be back coaching next season. For now.
