Questions on the Academic Investigation Dominate the Brian Kelly Presser

Kelly Presser

The investigation into academic improprieties of five Notre Dame players (as well as several other non-athletes) has been nothing short of a slow, frustrating process. The updates from under the Golden Dome have been few and far between since August. As the calendar prepares to turn to October, Brian Kelly did his level best to update a timeline that he has very little insight into. An academic committee has finally been formed.
