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.
