Notre Dame

  • Irish get the message
    INDIANAPOLIS – Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly didn’t scream at his players during halftime at Lucas Oil Stadium Saturday night. That wouldn’t have been him.
  • Boilers-Irish will take break
    For 69 years, there’s been one certainty concerning Purdue and Notre Dame football: the in-state foes would play in a rivalry that dates to the 19th century.
  • Notre Dame blockers are still bullish
    One of the first questions Notre Dame offensive line coach Harry Hiestand fielded in training camp last month was about losing star blockers Chris Watt and Zack Martin.“We definitely miss those guys, no question,” Hiestand said.

Irish in Big East 1 more season, Brey says

SOUTH BEND – Notre Dame basketball coach Mike Brey says the Fighting Irish will stay in the Big East for the 2013-14 season before leaving for the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Notre Dame announced in September it was leaving the Big East to join the ACC, with its football program remaining independent. Big East bylaws require 27 months’ notice from departing members, but athletic director Jack Swarbrick indicated he would at least talk to the Big East about the possibility of leaving early.

Brey said one reason Notre Dame decided to remain in the Big East another season is it believes the seven Catholic schools that have decided to leave and form their own league will remain in the Big East next season.

Big East associate commissioner John Paquette declined comment Thursday.
