It's going to be OK. Don't panic.
Not again. If Brian Kelly leaves, things will be OK.
Kelly reportedly interviewed with the Philadelphia Eagles roughly 96 hours after he said he had no idea if any NFL team had contacted his agent. He also had said Saturday in Miami before the BCS Championship Game, that leaving Notre Dame was not an option.
Basically, he lied. Leaving is an option, and it always was. Not only that, but I think he should take the job, unless the Chicago Bears have called, too. For several reasons, Kelly is a good fit for the NFL, where he can focus entirely on football, and not on the things he isn't into, like molding young men. I wrote about it Monday here .
The question is where this leaves Notre Dame. What should it do now?
First thing is to take a deep breath, and keep one thing in mind: Notre Dame is still paying Charlie Weis millions.
The right play with Kelly is to offer him a raise, an exten...

Didn’t Kelly say he wasn’t planning on leaving Notre Dame? This was before his team was embarrassed by Bama.

I promise, Notre Dame fans, I'll stop after this post. If there was a challenge to find one photo that could sum up the entire BCS national championship game, I'd say Sports Illustrated vastly exceeded expectations with the one they chose for their latest cover. The photo is apparently being referred to as "Stomping Ground" as it makes its rounds on Twitter this...
So this is what defeat feels like. I mean, after all, it had been over a year since the last time Notre Dame football lost a game, and I sort of, kind of forgot how this is supposed to taste.
If I listened to some twitter people and media outlets, I suppose I should be embarrassed that Notre Dame got beat so handily by Alabama 42-14. I suppose that in some ways this discredits...
