If Kelly isn't the guy, then who is?

If by some miracle an NFL team hires Kelly after this year, Dan Mullen. Mullen has very strong ties to Notre Dame, has coached on two championship teams under Meyer, has worked magic at Mississippi State, can recruit, and understands Notre Dame's culture. It won't happen but it would be a great hire. He'd win a title within 3 years.

Nope, ND will never be elite again. How does that make you feel Irish Storm?

 

Sad and mad. Sad because I remember what ND football used to be. Mad because I think the administration is fine with that as long as they win 8 or 9 games a year, graduates their players and the money keeps coming in.

I would take Mullen, he's a step up and has taken Mississippi state from bottom feeder to contender in the toughest conference. I just don't think top coaches wanna come here or else we wouldn't be getting goofballs like weis and Kelly. Those guys will never get bigtime jobs after nd and didn't have them before either.

 

Weis was a great nfl oc and Kelly built his resume beating up on the sisters of the poor in the big least.

If Mullen was indeed receptive to coming to South Bend, Swarbrick should be looking into this, Kelly while a good coach is never going to get us to the promised land, we have the same problems year after year, things will never change under Kelly. A total home run hire would be Jim Harbaugh, but that's just a pipe dream. At least thinking of these coaches gives me optimism for the future, so down on Kelly right now.

Gary Anderson from Wisconsin. There is no reason why nd should not be able to line up and maul 75% of their schedule year in and out, rushing for 500+ yards. The beauty of a great running game is that it is much more dependable than a passing game.

I truly believe ND is going to have to get lucky with their next hire. Harbaugh was at SDST when Stanford hired him, Urban was at Utah when Florida hired him. ND is going to have to get lucky and hire the next big thing in coaching in order to take the next step.

Is it possible that he learns from his mistakes & adjusts his coaching & turns the program? I feel it's too soon to oust him

 

Sure...

in 2010, he finally adjusted after the slap in the face that was Tulsa, and started using his big running backs more against Utah and USC

 

but is that what we want? A coach that needs to have his back against the wall to finally see the light?
