SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - The Notre Dame football team was back on the field Tuesday getting ready for the fall, taking advantage of a new NCAA rule allowing coaches to work with players over the summer.
Kelly hopes to use the time to install the core offense and defense. He says it also should help freshmen, who begin practicing next week.
Coaches are allowed to work up to eight hours a week with the players, but it comes from the time normally allotted to work with the strength and conditioning coach. Kelly says the only player unable to take part in the first workouts Tuesday was linebacker Jarrett Grace, who is still recovering from surgery in March to insert a rod to into his right leg that was broken in four places.
