4 QBs vying for starting job at Notre Dame



SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — The four-way competition to become Notre Dame’s starting quarterback job is just getting started — and it could be a long haul.

The Fighting Irish have three days of spring practices done, and only one in full pads.

Coach Brian Kelly has made it clear that all four players — junior Tommy Rees, sophomores Andrew Hendrix and Everett Golson and freshman Gunner Kiel — will have an equal opportunity at earning the start when the Fighting Irish open their season on Sept. 1 in against Navy in Dublin, Ireland.

Kelly has said he’s in no hurry to make a decision.
