ESPN is reporting that Notre Dame is set to hire Brian Kelly as the new head coach of the Irish. Kelly coached Cincinnati to a 12-0 record this year. The Bear Cats are set to play in the Sugar Bowl against Florida on New Years day.
Here is what Cincinnati’s best wide receiver, Mardy Gilyard, thinks about Kelly’s decision:
“I don’t like it. I feel there was a little lying in the thing. I feel like he’d known this the whole time. Everybody knows Notre Dame’s got the money. I kind of had a gut feeling he was going to stay just because he told me he was going to be here.”
In three seasons at Cincinnati, Kelly’s teams went 34-6, won back to back Big East titles and received two straight BCS berths.
