CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — New Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner Jim Phillips made it clear he wants Notre Dame to join the conference as a full-time football member.

Last season, Notre Dame played as a temporary member of the ACC due to COVID-19 rules and reached the conference championship game. Phillips described it as a “beautiful and beneficial relationship.” At ACC media days, the league even featured the Fighting Irish logo on the big screen.

Notre Dame has been an independent in football for decades.
