Taking it slow at QB (with video)

Notre Dame is taking the quarterback competition this spring very slowly.

The Irish started on the first page of the playbook to give Tommy Rees, Andrew Hendrix, Everett Golson and Gunner Kiel an equal shot at earning the starting spot.

Coach Brian Kelly said on Friday that the quarterbacks worked against having eight men in coverage.

The goal for the quarterbacks was to keep the play alive with few options on who to throw to because of coverage along with not turning the ball over and taking running opportunities when they were available.

"We did a very good job with all of the quarterbacks in not turning the football over and running the ball," Kelly said. "That was a jump for each one of them.

"Each day we are staging different tests for each quarterback. That's why this is going to be a long process. We have not even got to the checks in our offense yet. It's call it and play."
