Former Notre Dame linebacker Prince Shembo revealed to reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine that he was the player investigated in 2010 for the alleged sexual battery of Lizzy Seeberg, a St. Mary's College student who committed suicide 10 days after the incident.

Shembo proclaimed his innocence over the weekend and during his media session he told reporters that Notre Dame officials told him to not publicly discuss the incident while he was still attending school.

Fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly shared his take on the subject in an exclusive interview for Inside Look, which air on Monday, March 3 at 9:30 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet.

"There's nobody involved in this very tragic situation that looks back on it and says 'we did everything right' so we're always looking to improve everything," Kelly said. "We were charged with giving the Shembo family information and counseling, just like I do with all my players, and as a University and a head coach we felt like the information we gave Prince was the right information."
