Yeah this is a great hire, some here were saying he might have been a big part of Kelly's success in Cincinatti. I don't know much about him but he was the oc/ol coach for the Cinci teams.

 

I wouldn't mind if he stepped in for Heistand and had more of a say as an OC. He's coached with Kelly for over two decades so I'm sure he will have his respect and more input than others.

This will pay off tenfold over the loss of Alford. Face, it, Tony stuck around longer than he needed to, we should have lost him two years ago...

 

The Quinn hire is huge...

 

If I had to prognosticate - I'd take bets he will one day be the head coach...

 

I wouldn't agree with that bet. But, I do believe that his responsibilities will arch over more than just QB's, and that the trust that Kelly has in Quinn will allow Brian to focus more on the overall team. And overall, I think that will provide more benefit to results at ND than Alford and his recruiting.

 

I would've preferred to have both Quinn and Alford, but to have Quinn as a quick hire for this staff is a blessing, in all likelihood, and a boon to CBK and his career prospects.

Faster you get over it the easier it will be. Can't control it.

Don't use his efforts at Buffalo as a measuring stick...this is a home run hire...

 

He had one really good year up there, which is a miracle in and of itself. And, head coaching experience is a positive, too. I'd never use that job as a measuring stick. That Buffalo job has always been a CANNOT win kind of job. Even getting to mediocrity is a miracle.

Agreed, they are an hour away from us up here...he worked miracles with the talent pool. Think there are about six pro worthy talents to come out of there in recent years...Khalil Mack being the best of them...

Yup. A buddy of mine grew up there and his parents went there, so it was on his laptops ESPN3 app a lot while we were watching ND games these last 4 years. They're HISTORICALLY bad, but Quinn was able to do something with them, which is amazing. And yeah, Mack and Branden Oliver were the two biggest names. A bunch of other guys around the league, which is amazing for them.

I doubt that this was a quick hire. Kelly said that there could be changes in the coaching staff at the end of the season.

 

I am sure that he has been in contact with Quinn and other coaches that he is interested in.
