With college football season and the opening of a renovated Notre Dame Stadium less than two months away, IndyStar’s Notre Dame Insider Laken Litman sat down with Fighting Irish athletic director Jack Swarbrick. Swarbrick discussed his expectations for the upcoming season after going 4-8, how he believes Brian Kelly’s role has changed, future opponent scheduling, conference expansion and much more. Notre Dame kicks off its season Sept. 2 against Temple. Question: Will you evaluate this season any differently after going 4-8? Answer: I use the same factors. I, like everyone else, use wins and losses — but it’s only one factor. We’re looking at a host of things related to the performance of the students on the field and in the classroom and how they represent the university, how the program represents us. We have specific standards within the program that are performance related. I’m very confident that we’ll be significantly better this year. – Laken Litman, indystar.comRead More
