Has Brian Kelly lost credibility?
Fri, 11 Jan 2013|
Brian Kelly once called Notre Dame his "dream job," so why is he looking at the NFL? The Chicago Tribune Live panel examines that question and more - 1/11
Looking at. Philly and now they lose their one of their star recruits who may have been go to Florida anyway because the kid's dad played there do you feel like. Kelly is being disrespectful to Notre Dame. We're talking for the Eagles. That if he told -- and this is where he's gonna do that he's gone behind their back and doing it maybe that's. This doesn't sound surprising the guys were talking about him maybe don't take a pro job before the championship game so I don't see with the big deal is when he's got a lot of the championship game from the with the media was. Leaving is not an option idiots that come out said one word. Well he should come out and say something about -- that's you know I. You know the guys looking for another job I don't blame. This is what college coaches do now especially if you're a college coach playing in the BCS bowl game effort NFL team or somebody who you think may have a better offer. You're going to listen you know from this -- why I don't really blame them. You have to listen you know from the Eagles standpoint. You know I. Don't think that this would be a good move from their standpoint and all but from Brian Kelly's camp -- I won everywhere he's been yep okay. So what in college. Well be the other guys have made the move. Who would to Jim Harbaugh Jim Harbaugh wasn't it was a quarterbacks coach in Oakland before coaching college -- that the NFL. Okay Brian Kelly has no NFL experience. Kids so your telling me -- I just don't think -- be a good move Vick for the from the Eagles standpoint. I don't think it would be a good move to take Brian Kelly because he's had success at but as a as a head coach in college. Didn't tell all of a sudden assume he's gonna have had success is the head coach at the NFL without having any NFL experience prior to. That here in Eagles fan what do you think we won't -- first of all about Kelly. Well as we talked last week you would think that. For him personally he never has more leverage and has right now with the success he had this year -- Notre Dame. Other -- other people be looking I'm an assist with a college coaches get so once seemingly he's in front of the press -- It's it's a legitimate question. And it's don't know I'm. I would never considered that and then not even 24 hours later. And you would think there had to be some prior. Connection there before he does -- had just always seems -- like you know eagle once what was the -- side of it. You know that they've interviewed O'Brien they've interviewed Kelly it seems like their intent -- -- in a college guys I don't get that -- -- about I don't I would rather see an NFL coach says you think in the Bobby Petrino if you think so money disasters. That have been from -- college guys coming to the NFL now again if you had prior NFL background repetitive like Jimmie Johnson going to -- Cowboys that's the exception. Won't but he also had -- already knowing that yeah trade may be aspect but there are more guys who have got who have -- -- and failed. That immediately -- head this is that's what they got Gordon haters that an -- of all. Know what you're not committed but to play any odds absolutely that's -- you know -- the the odds are stacked against you and I get legacy and just. And for Notre Dame just it seems -- unseemly. That I mean within 24 hours that came out I -- -- -- I don't think like we said last week I figure out of the would have been so you have to winning again -- Notre Dame are kind of stacked against even though you have a phenomenal recruiting class and that's try to get into where you go out on a roll now you've got to recruit. These guys to come and -- the number one recruiting class in -- nation you're selling these guys on this program and then bang it's the season's over hey I'm out here for more cash that's to me is the part that really got through you know. Brian Kelly's camp that it to understand his point a little bit. There were a week before playing in the national title game and somebody's asking you about whether or not be interested in going to the NFL what are you going to -- off are you gonna say. Oh yeah I would be very generous of course you're not because if you did. That's the whole story for the week and then when they get blown up that's why they get a ball not at all Kelly's fault because he was distracted and you think about. Of course he's got to think about that and don't let and that's just you know that's everybody's got the motivation now -- when you're doing 24 hours later. Was he distracted what you think and that I think was he playing more -- are good now but I don't have a that was on what I do know that Notre Dame right now. To say to them and make people he has he do you think he's under contract I -- I don't think anybody says something nobody owes it to the recruits into a public statement. Did Notre Dame fans that have been behind this guy from the get go -- -- while that's our guy we want him here we love him he's. Below real world had Notre Dame fan NL holly yeah this is college you know I think it's. You're the daughter you get ten year -- and you can get fired in two years so you know. Now you're Notre Dame you all of a sudden. Give him a big raise an action and an extension everything Marty told they want to. -- this and that's exactly a -- coaches do what they do because they hold these schools hostage. And they know what and if you can -- it then good for night.
