The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have been nearly unstoppable this season, having finished the year with an undefeated record and a trip to the college football playoff. Although they may have one of the most talented rosters in the nation down in South Bend, Indiana, the Irish certainly could not have done it without the help of their superstar head coach Brian Kelly.
Kelly and his influence on the success of the team has not gone unnoticed, however, as he has been named this year's Home Depot Coach of the Year.

With this award, Kelly has become the first man ever to hold the title of best coach in the country more than once (Kelly won in 2012, as well).
