Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said freshman quarterback Gunner Kiel has handled the death of his uncle, Blair Kiel, well.
Blair Kiel, who played quarterback for Notre Dame and for seven seasons in the NFL, died Sunday.
"He went home, obviously, to be with his family," Kelly said after Saturday's practice. "He came back and locked in as usual. He is great in the classroom, and he is great on the field. He has a great temperament and demeanour."
