Yep..along with another zinger...
Kelly denied having any interest in an NFL coaching job this past Saturday, claiming that leaving Notre Dame "is not an option. I don't even think about it."
"I think from my perspective I've got the best job in the country, NFL, college, high school, whatever," Kelly said Saturday. "I just look at the place that I'm at and thankful for the opportunity that I have."

I think it is a lateral move because of the life-span of a 21st century NFL coach. You never know. Eagles are looking for another 5-8 year guy. I don't think BK would do well in the NFL but that is just me.
Then again, the average life-span of a Notre Dame HC isn't much more, but I, as well as others, believe BK is special.
I heard the names of the coaches being looked at for the vacancies, pretty sad. The best coaches are in college right now. You don't believe Philly would take Kelly or Saban over our former Arians or recycled Lovie Smith and others? It's a sad state. Some of these owners keep their teams down in the dumps and like Coach Saban said, a good coach is powerless to really change things.
Some unfortunate coach will get stuck with Michael Vick. It's all about the bling in the NFL for the most part. Look at the Jets for an example of total insanity.

I'm still waiting to see the actual salary. I appreciate what's being done as far as responses to the money but....
Let's see it. Otherwise it's all speculation.
Also, what makes the ND HC job so elite? Certainly not recent history other than this year. Is it facilities? Apparently not the pay scale. I think it's perception for the most part.
Ask me about my vow of silence.
Whether he wants more money or he's seriously considering the NFL, he should not have interviewed the day after being blown out. If anything, that would cause me to tell him to forget the pay raise if I was the ND AD.

Rumor is that all our 2013 recruits have formed a facebook group and are currently speaking about the possibility of Kelly leaving. Most have tweeted they are ND no matter what. Still, just bad timing all in all.
I am now getting a taste of what you guys go through with CNS (or what you used to go through).
That doesn't mean I think Notre Dame is going to field a year in, year out elite team (too many in-built obstacles) though
