“We’ve talked to NBC about the way we like to play the game versus maybe how it was played in the past,” Kelly said Tuesday. “There is certainly a need for us to address it and I think we’re working with NBC to make certain that they get what they need from an advertising standpoint. But, also as the network that carries Notre Dame, that we’re able to do things we need to do as well.”
Kelly said he’s convinced a middle ground can be reached, though he wouldn’t go into specifics about the conversations. Notre Dame’s contract with NBC is reportedly worth $15 million annually for football.
