Brian Kelley to be Notre Dame's Next Coach

CBS Sportsline and ESPN are reporting that Notre Dame has hired University of Cincinnati Coach Brian Kelly as their next head football coach.

While some in Cincinnati will be angry over his departure, I can't blame Kelly for pursuing a higher level job. In my opinion he has taken this team as far as they will go.

I wish Coach Kelly luck in returning the Fighting Irish to a position of prominence in college football. Like his predecessor (Charlie Weiss), Kelly is known as an offensive minded coach. He will need to focus on improving the Irish defense if he wants to be more successful. Notre Dame couldn't stop anyone this year and that proved to be their undoing.

Certianly cant blame him for taking a more prestigious job.

Time will tell if it was a good hire.

Cincinnati has a rather imposing ceiling of Ohio State. While being in the same state they will always get second billing.
