SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said he hired Boise State offensive coordinator Mike Sanford to shake things up a bit.

"I think we came to the agreement that we're going to get somebody in here that it's going to keep us on our toes, is going to bring that room up to a level that is going to create such synergy and energy on a day-to-day basis that it's going to make everybody better," Kelly said Monday during a news conference.

Sanford, whose father is head coach at Indiana State and was Notre Dame quarterbacks coach 1996-98, helped Boise State to a 12-2 record last season. The Broncos ranked ninth in scoring (39.7) and 14th in total offense (494.3 yards). Notre Dame was 38th in scoring offense (32.8) and 32nd in total offense (444.9) in going 8-5 last season.
