I will tell you right off the bat that I am not a fan of Notre Dame. It is the Purdue in me. However, I have to respect what they have done this year. They may not have played a murderer’s row but they did what they were supposed to. Brian Kelly has done a great job and people have noticed. By people, I mean NFL teams.
Chip Kelly not the only Kelly generating NFL interest. ND coach Brian Kelly is rising on some NFL teams radar as well

I really hope that Kelly stamps this out right away. As much as it pains me to say it, I think ND could be on the verge of a potential dynasty. That would pain a lot of people, but Notre Dame is on the rise. They are getting some great players in and Kelly is a heck of a coach. That is why he is getting the interest from some NFL teams.
The teams are unnamed at this point and there is no reason for them not to poke around. If Kelly wants to jump, it would be could to be on him early. If his team brings home a national title, he might want to try his hand in the league. That might not be the smartest thing, but who knows?
This rumor might start gaining some steam in the coming days. Kelly should stay where he is for now. His team is on the rise and there’s no need to a risk right now.
