The University of Notre Dame announced on Tuesday that football head coach Brian Kelly received a two-year extension on his contract.

This would make Kelly the head coach for the Fighting Irish through the 2016 football season.

"While Coach Kelly and I are focused on the additional work that must be done to reach our goals, I am very pleased with the progress we have made during the past two years," said University of Notre Dame vice president and director of athletics Jack Swarbrick, in the release issued Tuesday.

"Our football team's performance on the field, in the classroom, and in the community reflect Coach Kelly's commitment to building a program that will be able to sustain success in the long run, and to doing so in a manner consistent with Notre Dame's values and tradition,” continued Swarbrick.

Kelly is 16-10 over two years as the head football coach for the Irish.

In a statement released Tuesday, Kelly thanked the university administration for their unwavering support over the past two years.

The six returning assistant football coaches received contract renewals on Jan. 2.
