    Re: Notre Dame's Brian Kelly interviews with Eagles

    He has been "upwardly mobile" for about 10 years now. Doesn't surprise me to see that he wants to keep riding this wave. Notre Dame is only paying him an estimated $2.4MM/yr - he would double that in the NFL. IMO, he would be a fool to turn down a 4-5 year contract with an NFL team.

    ETA - unless ND gives him a huge raise and a 10 year contract.

    Players like the "i have nfl coaching experience i can get you to the nfl" type of coach. A coach with no nfl exp. Can tell recruits hey the nfl wants me,, and in some quirky way it plays with a 17 yr old recruit. It gives the coach some nfl cred.

    His salary is low - relative to the upper echelon coaches, and at the moment there's very few better college coaches. I'd be surprised if he's not using this interview as an opportunity to improve his contract.

    Eagles job is a lateral move.

    We will offer him 4 million and he stay.

    How so? Maybe to your fan base, but not to the rest of the world. A lateral move would be if he took the USCw job. An NFL HC job is an upgrade over ND.

    If you offer him $4MM/yr for 10 years, he might stay. As for an NFL HC job (ANY NFL HC job) being a lateral move - that very much depends on Kelly's life goals. Most football coaches would scoff at the idea, but a few would agree.

    Does anyone know how much he's being paid? I'd be kinda surprised if ND only paid him $2.4m annually.

    You probably wouldn't say the Browns would be an upgrade for Saban would you?? It's apples and oranges. I don't think you can say that the NFL is automatically an upgrade over the four or five marquee college jobs, which Notre Dame certainly is.

    ND is going to have to do what we finally did when we hired Saban--pull out the checkbook and pay what it takes to get AND keep a top tier coach instead of expecting them to come here for a low ball salary just because of our tradition.

    Where is his salary posted? Private schools normally do not make such information available. What does he make and where can we see it as well?

    Kelley is dazed and confused. That is what being processed will do to a coach.
