Report: LSU Making 'Aggressive Push' to Hire Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly

After being publicly spurned by Lincoln Riley, LSU is targeting Brian Kelly as the top candidate to fill its head coach vacancy, according to The Athletic.

FootballScoop's John Brice was the first to report LSU's interest.

Kelly, 60, is 92–39 in 12 seasons at Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish reached the College Football Playoff in 2018 and 2020 under Kelly, and they've won at least 10 games in each of the last five years.

Sources have told Sports Illustrated's Pat Forde that LSU has been "trying to make it happen" with Kelly, though there has been no confirmation Kelly has reciprocated that interest.
