    It is not public, but that is the number that you will find if you google - and the internet is never wrong.

    BTW, $2.4MM represents more than double what he was making at Cincinnatti ($1.1MM)

    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 was just going by what B1GTide quoted, I don't know how much he makes.

    I said over ND not over Bama...and like someone else mentioned it really depends on what that persons goal is. I don't consider ND a top 5 job mainly because of the academic restrictions on recruiting. Most of the players that want to go to ND cant get in the school academically. Its an all time top 5 job, but not present day top 5 IMO

    This is right. It's actually more around 2.6mm, but as far as the pay scale in its relativity, it is low.

    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.

    Re: Notre Dame's Brian Kelly interviews with Eagles

    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.

    Re: Notre Dame's Brian Kelly interviews with Eagles

    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.

    Notre Dame's Brian Kelly interviews with Eagles

    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.

    One of my primary worries is having a bunch of EE's in their moving vans asking themselves, "What am I doing." I completely agree with you, it is bad timing. My guess is Swarbrick (our AD) lowballed him, Kelly said yes to interview, etc.

    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).

    I suppose - if nothing else - it would be the brand. Notre Dame being competitive again is enough to fill more column inches than just about any other school. I guess you can argue about why, but in my opinion it must have something to do with the interest the program generates. So I suppose that's why I'd say it is a marquee college job. It's part of American culture (maybe not down here so much!) that won't fade, whereas other historical giants (Penn State and Nebraska) might.

    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

    It's an every year thing with us. For one thing, the writers have to have something to write about and Saban is always fertile material, no matter how flimsy the underlying facts may be. The other thing is our rivals, particularly those across the state, will try to say anything which they think may hurt our recruiting. I just checked a couple of their boards this PM and they're still trumpeting it. It's irritating, but we're used to it. On Kelly, this was just bad form, IMO. It may not cause an exodus, but, if even one or two leading recruits defect, it's damaged the school's recruiting. I'm very disappointed in him...

    Thinking back, he may have called the Eagles at halftime....leading to his remarks before the start of the 2nd half
