Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly has signed a new five-year contract, saying it signifies that he and school officials agree that they are "all in it together. 

Athletic director Jack Swarbrick said the school would not provide any details of the contract, but said he was excited that Kelly would continue to lead the football program. Swarbrick said Kelly has "fundamentally changed" and restored the Notre Dame program.

Kelly had said four weeks ago that a new deal was "imminent." Swarbrick had announced in January after Kelly led the Irish to a 12-0 record and the national championship game against Alabama that the school was working on a contract extension. Kelly interviewed for the Philadelphia Eagles job the day after the BCS game in January.
