Coach Kelly masks debut Friday

Fans are used to seeing a lot of Coach Brian Kelly on Notre Dame game days, but likely not used to seeing thousands of him!

Masks portraying Coach Kelly's face will be sold over the weekend to help support the Kelly Cares Foundation and Logan.

The two foundations joined forces to create around 13,000 masks for the public to enjoy. Logan client employees worked on the masks for several weeks to make sure they were on time for ESPN's College Game day, the same weekend The Fighting Irish take on Stanford.

The masks go on sale Friday for $5 each. Or $1 for students who have valid ID's and for children. All of the proceeds will be split between Logan and The Kelly Cares Foundation.

Coach Kelly's wife, Paqui Kelly, made an appearance at Logan Industries Thursday to thank the workers for their support and dedication to the project.

Kelly says, "It's a special thing, these are special people and special workers. And they are diligent about their work, the one was upset she wasn't on this particular project, which, I'm like, those are the kind of passions you want on any employment opportunity where people are happy to be here and do their job, and they've done a great. Job. I'm just glad that we had the ability and the thought, we thought the process out and it worked out great for both of us."

Paqui Kelly says she's pleased with the way the masks turned out, and is most happy that Coach Kelly was smiling in the picture.
