If Brian Kelly is fishing for a contract extension, he has some stones. The Notre Dame coach interviewed with the Eagles the day after the BCS Title Game. He has a second interview scheduled this weekend. He has also reportedly been contacting NFL people to ask them about the differences between college and the NFL. That said, he’s not the only candidate the Eagles will be interviewing.
Should Kelly leave, is there any better offseason college football story than a ridiculous, panicked mid-January coaching search in South Bend? Bob Stoops does not sound too content at Oklahoma. Charlie Strong had a long chat with Tennessee before staying at Louisville. Would the former Notre Dame assistant reconsider for the Irish? Mike Gundy? Some fools would start Urban Meyer and Pat Fitzgerald rumors. One more job for Chris Petersen to turn down? Could get crazy.
