Brian Kelly steps into his third season at Notre Dame once again looking for a quarterback who is the best fit for his spread offense. Sure sounds familiar.

He needs someone to run the offense quickly and efficiently and not commit crucial turnovers. The Irish threw 17 interceptions a year ago.

After back-to-back 8-5 seasons, Kelly has to find the right guy. He has benched Tommy Rees for the Sept. 1 opener against Navy and has three other quarterbacks in the mix with the program facing one of its most challenging schedules in years.

Everett Golson and Andrew Hendrix are battling for the starting job and Rees will challenge them both when he returns.
