How did Brian Kelly get to LSU?

After Coach Ed Orgeron's emotional final game in Tiger stadium, all LSU fans began wondering who would take his place. It only took a few days for the word to spread that LSU was going after Notre Dame's coach, Brian Kelly.

While Kelly has yet to win a National Championship, his winning resume warranted LSU to shell out a pretty hefty contract for the veteran coach to make his way down to Baton Rouge.

Before that came a late-night text from Coach Kelly to his team at Notre Dame, who unfortunately had to find out the hard way that their Coach was ditching town for an SEC job.

Although the goodbye to his team at Notre Dame was far from ideal, Kelly is onto greener pastures down here in The Boot. @LSUFootball is sure happy to have secured their coach.
