Dayne Crist will be Notre Dame's starting quarterback Coach Brian Kelly has announced.
The decision comes as no surprise as Crist was the starting quarterback last year until suffering a season ending injury.
The move was revealed today as Keane, 31, found no takers for his services in the English Premiership. He failed to reach agreement with his last club, Tottenham, whose boss Harry Redknapp proved not to be a Keane fan. Keane has played with Tottenham since January of 2009, but has been lent out to Glasgow Celtic and West Ham United during that time.
Keane, 31, played in a scoreless draw against Croatia in Dublin on Wednesday evening for the Irish national side. He is expected to travel to Los Angeles to undergo a physical and complete the two-year deal that will see him join Beckham, who signed with the Galaxy in January 2007 in a package worth a reported $250 million.
ESPN commentator Alex Dimond has stated that Rory McIlroy needs to fire his caddy JP Fitzgerald if he is to “save himself from himself” after he hurt his hand in yesterday’s first round of the PGA championship, the year’s final major.
McIlroy hurt his hand trying an impossible shot, to move the ball away from tree roots on the third hole. He needed on course treatment before continuing and may be forced to withdraw. First to criticize McIlroy was commentator Jay Townsend who clashed with McIlroy after the British Open.
"I think Rory might have hurt himself by hitting a tree root, smart play??? I'll let you all decide," was the mocking tweet Townsend sent out.
Kelly was still playing coy yesterday with only a few weeks to go before the college opener against South Florida.
"In an ideal situation, I'd like to know who the starter is before camp," said Kelly in a press conference on Friday.
Everyone believes it is Dayne Crist who on paper outshines the junior but games are not won on paper.
