Notre Dame Football News: Brian Kelly Not "Comfortable" In South Bend After Five Years

Our Notre Dame football news updated for August 19th:

Notre Dame football head coach Brian Kelly is aware that only four other coaches in the 128-year history of the program have lasted more than five seasons, with all of those coaches having won national titles with the Irish -- Knute Rockne, Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian and Lou Holtz.

Kelly doesn't have a championship yet, nor is his .692 winning percentage in the same league as the aforementioned greats, and he knows that he could always be yanked from the program if he doesn't keep the ship righted and moving forward.

"I don't know if you ever get comfortable in the seat at Notre Dame," Kelly said, via Yahoo! Sports. "Comfortable wouldn't be a word that I would use. I think what I would probably say is that the picture is a lot clearer in the sense that I really know where our strengths and weaknesses are as a program, what we need to continue to work on and develop, and know the direction that we need to continue to push the group in. So I think it's just a more clearer understanding of the program and what we need every single day more than a comfort level.

"Like I said, I don't think you ever feel comfortable here at Notre Dame. And I don't mean that in a negative way. I just think you've always got to be looking at how to get better every day."

Notre Dame hit a brick wall in 2014 after a blazing 6-0 start, losing five of their last six regular season games before clipping LSU 31-28 in the American Mortgage Music City Bowl last December 30th.
