Photo: Brian Kelly Defends His Plaid Jacket On Twitter

Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly made quite a statement at Tuesday’s press conference – not with his words, but rather with his outfit. The Irish head coach, who immediately addressed the situation by joking “I did not lose a bet”, had on a ridiculous blue plaid jacket. He claims to have won it during a golf tournament (that featured a few Michigan coaches) called The Plaid Open.

Tonight, presumably after catching even more flak for it, he took to Twitter to defend himself and his choice of apparel.

It’s more personality than we usually get to see from Kelly, so that’s a positive sign. We’ll see if the jacket brings him any good luck against the Wolverines this Saturday.
