Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly says Tommy Rees will start at quarterback for the Fighting Irish this season.
Kelly spoke Wednesday night at a Grand Valley State University event in Grand Rapids, Mich., and mlive.com reports (http://bit.ly/13mTswS) that Rees will be the starter. Kelly had told reporters 10 days earlier that it would be a three-man competition to replace starter Everett Golson, who was suspended for the fall semester by the university for poor academic judgment.
Rees started 12 of 13 games for the Irish in 2011, when Notre Dame went 8-5. He also played key roles in four victories last season when Golson either struggled or was injured.
Kelly says he thinks Andrew Hendrix and Malik Zaire can contribute at quarterback, but Rees will start.

With Everett Golson being suspended for the upcoming fall semester, it looked like Notre Dame was in a pickle when it came to figuring out who their starting quarterback would be for the 2013 season. Well look no more because according to head coach Brian Kelly — Tommy Rees has been named the incumbent starter.
“We always move forward,” said Kelly to the Grand Rapids Press...
Notre Dame received a commitment from four-star running back Elijah Hood during late April. Last Tuesday he posted a video via Twitter that showed him flushing a letter, from the University of Alabama, down the toilet with the hashtag #RollToilet. Of course, the video and the tweet are both gone but CBSSports was kind enough to share a picture.
All snickering aside and there still...
When a lot of guys head to the studio after their coaching or playing careers are over they tend to make a point to bash their former team in order to attempt to prove they are 'impartial.' Not former Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz though. He's maintained his love of the Fighting Irish ever since he stepped into the studio.
So then why on Earth is he holding a USC...
Former Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz, now an ESPN analyst, makes it known any chance he gets that he still roots for the Irish on the gridiron. But Reddit user Nuckifyabuck got him to do the unthinkable:
Yup, that’s Holtz holding a USC jersey, smiling. Here’s the story:
“I tried to get him to wear it. He said there wasn’t enough time for him to. Then asked me if I wanted him...
