Kelly: Penalty a result of miscommunication

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Brian Kelly is still trying to figure out why TJ Jones was flagged for excessive celebration after he caught third-quarter touchdown pass from quarterback Tommy Rees. 

The Notre Dame coach said he's still trying to get clarification on what is considered excessive celebration and what is not.

"I was told specifically that that was not a penalty," Kelly said. "So now we're going to have to open up a line of communication to find out where that miscommunication lies.

"TJ simply put his hands together on the back of his gloves as the Fighting Irishmen. He was just showing it to the crowd. He didn't jump into the crowd, he didn't high five, he simply put his hands up.

"We have to get a dialogue with both the Big Ten and the Big East and find out where the miscommunication is."
