The Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team is the intercollegiate football team representing the University of Notre Dame, located in Notre Dame, Indiana. The team is currently coached by Brian Kelly. The team plays its home games at the campus's Notre Dame Stadium, with a capacity of 80,795. Notre Dame is one of three schools that compete as an Independent at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Football Bowl Subdivision level; however, they play five games a year against opponents from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), which Notre Dame is a member of in all other sports (except ice hockey).
One of the most iconic and successful programs in college sports, the Fighting Irish hold the highest winning percentage among college football programs and have 13 national championships recognized by the NCAA, second out of all FBS schools in the NCAA era. A record seven Notre Dame players have won theHeisman trophy, and the program has produced 97 consensus All-Americans, 33 unanimous All-Americans, and 50 members of the College Football Hall of Fame, all NCAA records. With 486 players selected, Notre Dame is second to USC in the number of players chosen by NFL teams in the draft.
All Notre Dame home games have been televised on NBC since 1991. Notre Dame is the only individual school to have its own national television contract, was the only independent program to be part of the Bowl Championship Series coalition and its guaranteed payout, and has one of the largest, most widespread fanbases in college football. These factors help make Notre Dame one of the most financially valuable football programs in the country, allowing them to remain independent of a conference.
Anderson and Layden (1931–1940)
Through game broadcasts during the Golden Age of Radio, Notre Dame football gained a nationwide following of "subway alumni", Catholics who became fans whether or not they attended the university.Heartley "Hunk" Anderson took the helm of the Irish leading them to a record of 16 wins, nine losses, and two ties. Anderson was a former Irish player under Rockne and was serving as an assistant coach at the time of Rockne's death. Anderson resigned as Irish head coach in 1934 and was replaced by Elmer Layden, who was one of Rockne's "Four Horsemen" in the 1920s. After graduating, Layden played professional football for one year and then began a coaching career. The Irish posted a record of 47 wins, 13 losses, and three ties in seven years under Layden, the most successful record of a Notre Dame coach not to win a national championship. He left Notre Dame after the 1940 season to become Commissioner of the National Football League.
