Rant My Life: Is Brian Kelly Serious About Interest in NFL After Interviewing With Philadelphia Eagles?
Shortly after the Notre Dam Fighting Irish fell to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the BCS National Championship, Brian Kelly made it clear he had no intention of making the jump from college football to the NFL. However, it appears no matter what was said by Kelly after the game, there may be a small part of him that has some interest in joining the big leagues for the 2013 season.
After parting ways with Andy Reid, the Philadelphia Eagles interviewed Kelly this week as they continue their search for a new head coach for the 2013 season. There’s no question the Eagles would be lucky to land a coach like Kelly, but it’s easy to see what’s really going on with this situation.
Kelly is clearly trying to scare Notre Dame here by making them think he’s thinking about leaving when really–he realizes this situation can work to his advantage. After finishing 12-0 during the regular season and reaching the National Championship, Notre Dame will do whatever it takes to keep Kelly happy and the head coach realizes that–which it wouldn’t be a surprise if he’s just using the NFL to gain extra money from the program.
Even if he does express interest in the big leagues down the road, it’s safe to say Kelly won’t be leaving Notre Dame before next season considering the type of success he accomplished in 2012. The Irish have come a long way since Kelly took over the head coaching job two years ago and after falling just short of winning the National Championship–you know he wants another shot at the title in 2013.
