“Every position, all 22 of them, will be evaluated,” Kelly pronounced during his postgame news conference. “Each and each position. There is no position that is chaste on this football team. And that’s a quarterback, all a approach down to — maybe a prolonged snapper’s OK. We’re not going to hold him. But everybody else is vulnerable.”

David Cutcliffe creates many of initial outing behind to Notre Dame in Duke’s dissapoint win

Health issues short-circuited David Cutcliffe’s army as Notre Dame QBs coach, though Duke gave him all a fad he could’ve wanted in a 38-35 win.

Kelly described quarterback DeShone Kizer‘s play as “below standard” and “not acceptable” after a redshirt sophomore threw for 381 yards and rushed for 60 though incited over a round twice. The Irish, for a initial time, featured backup quarterback Malik Zaire as a receiver on dual plays, though Kelly pronounced those packages will be scrapped after a plays netted minus-8 yards.

Asked if it’s a probability that sophomore quarterback Brandon Wimbush — who had been approaching to redshirt — will play this season, Kelly said: “That’s a possibility. That’s a clear possibility.”

Asked after about who has to be on a margin for a Fighting Irish, Kelly said, “Guys that have glow and courage and — we had one man in a whole football group that had tension and fire. That is (running back) Dexter Williams. He’s a usually one. He’s a usually one that we saw. One guy.

“So, if we wish to play for me relocating forward, we improved — we don’t caring what your résumé says, we don’t caring if we were a five-star [recruit], if we had 100 tackles or 80 receptions or 30 touchdown passes — we improved have some damn glow and appetite in you. We miss it. We miss it. Severely.”

Those crew changes, however, will leave a coaching staff unaffected. Third-year coordinator Brian VanGorder has faced copiousness of feverishness from a fan base, with a segments of Saturday’s Notre Dame Stadium throng chanting to glow him after a Irish gave adult 35-plus points for a fifth time in their past 6 games dating to final season.

“Actually, that’s substantially a one area that we feel improved about today,” Kelly said. “We did what we wanted currently in terms of coaching. And coaching had zero to do with a outcome today. we was gratified from that perspective.”

Kizer pronounced Duke wanted a diversion some-more than Notre Dame did, and that he has to govern a offense better.

“We’re always hold to a aloft standard,” Kizer said. ” … we know that in sequence for to us win football games, we’re going to have to come out with a glow and a clarity of urgency, a thing that [Kelly has] been priesthood all week.”
