Report: Kelly, Notre Dame talks 'heating up'


"Things are heating up" with regard to the likelihood that Brian Kelly will become the next Notre Dame head coach, a source close to the Cincinnati coach said Tuesday.

Kelly has had direct communication with representatives for Notre Dame but a decision was made not to have a formal interview with athletic director Jack Swarbrick while they were both in New York City on Tuesday, the source said. Further discussions between Kelly and Notre Dame are expected, said the source, who indicated that no contract had yet been offered but that the entire process could be completed within days.

Meanwhile, Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh, who like Kelly is in New York City and has been mentioned as a possible Notre Dame candidate, reiterated Tuesday that "there is no meeting" with Notre Dame scheduled.
