SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Sentiment succinctly summed up the last 37 hours of Notre Dame football. “So this video had a slightly different response than yesterday, eh? A source from the program said shortly after Tommy Rees told his players he was staying with the Irish.

Notre Dame claimed his second victory over his former coach in as many days on Wednesday night when Rees opted to stay at South Bend rather than follow Brian Kelly to LSU, turning down an offer that would have made him the highest-paid offensive coordinator of the SEC. sources told The Athletic. Shortly after the decision was announced, Bruce Feldman of The Athletic announced that defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman was set to become Ireland’s next head coach.

Rees’ message to his players, delivered a little after 8 p.m. and tweeted by the program at 8:29 p.m., came a day and a half after Kelly’s awkward exit speech at 7 a.m. on Tuesday – a speech which one source at The L’Athletic on Wednesday, was even more uncomfortable than the leaked video of the exchange had suggested.

Kelly, out of the clip of the clip, chose to take the long walk out of the auditorium of the Guglielmino athletics complex, walking up a long staircase to the second floor while passing her players silently and without making eye contact – the final scene of a meeting that turned out to be a gross miscalculation of how the former coach thought his players would react when he left.
