Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly on AD Jack Swarbrick giving him a vote of confidence last week: "Well I was disappointed actually. But anytime that your athletic director has to come out and say that, as a head coach you're disappointed that any kind of comments like that have to be made.

But for me it's disappointing, certainly, that you have to make those comments."
