LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- Brian Kelly of Notre Dame has won coach of the year at the Home Depot College Football Awards show at Disney World.

Kelly received the award Thursday night. He becomes the first two-time winner, having previously received the honor in 2009 while he was at Cincinnati.

Kelly led the 12-0 Fighting Irish to the school's first undefeated regular season since 1988 and only the second overall. Kelly also joins Lou Holtz as the only Notre Dame coaches to post winning seasons in each of their first three seasons at the school.

Notre Dame will take on Alabama in the BCS national championship game on Jan. 7.
