Notre Dame has settled on Brian Kelly as the man who can restore its faded glory, just as he turned Cincinnati into a national title contender.

Cincinnati athletic director Mike Thomas said Kelly is off to the lead the Irish and will not coach the third-ranked Bearcats in their Sugar Bowl game against Florida.

The 47-year old Kelly was 34-6 in three seasons at Cincinnati, leading the Bearcats to back-to-back Big East titles and two straight Bowl Championship Series berths.

They finished with a 12-0 mark this season.
