Post-Practice Media: Aug. 23

Aug 24, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

You may have heard, yesterday was a newsworthy day for Notre Dame football.

As reported last night, head coach Brian Kelly named sophomore Everett Golson as the starting quarterback for next week’s season opener against Navy in Dublin, Ireland.

Coach Kelly spoke more about the quarterback decision, among other topics, at the Isban Auditorium in the Gug. Fighting Irish Digital Media captured the entire 15-minute session, which you can watch below.

And here’s Golson, making his first media appearance as Notre Dame’s starting quarterback. The Myrtle Beach, S.C. native talks about his reaction to being named the starter, and tells an interesting story on the agreement he made with Coach Kelly about getting a visor on his helmet.
