Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly has apparently settled on Tommy Rees as the starting quarterback for the Irish. Kelly and his wife were being honored in Grand Rapids with the Leadership Award during Grand Valley State University's annual enrichment dinner on Wednesday when the former GVSU coach let the news slip. While answering a question about the quarterback situation in the wake of Everett Golson's academic issues, Kelly said his team has "Tommy Rees, who is an established player, and he will be our starter." Rees has appeared in 33 games for the Irish, starting 18 over 3 seasons, and has thrown for more than 44-hundred yards with 34 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. Notre Dame’s schedule this fall includes a Saturday night game on September 7th at Michigan Stadium and two weeks later, a matchup against Michigan State in South Bend.
