AP Sports Writer

Newly hired LSU coach Brian Kelly is in Baton Rouge after flying in on a private jet with athletic director Scott Woodward. LSU says Kelly has agreed to a 10-year contract worth $95 million plus incentives. Kelly has coached at Notre Dame for the past 12 seasons and eclipsed Knute Rockne for career victories with the Fighting Irish. Kelly waved and gave a thumbs-up to cheering fans while the LSU marching band played at the Baton Rouge airport. Kelly arrives at LSU after successful stints with Grand Valley State, Central Michigan and Notre Dame. Kelly’s introductory media conference is scheduled for Wednesday.
