    I think its an ok move. A coach that Kelly can build up and not get in his way. Kelly is known to hire Alum. This is his 3rd one at ND.

    I hope this is not true. Next year we won't have a single QB with even 1 snap of experience. Rees doesn't have any real coaching experience. As a former QB, Rees will always be remembered for turnovers. Rees would be a terrible hire as QB coach.

    So did this story end up going anywhere? Last I heard Rees squelched the rumors himself. Seems like it was picked up a few places. That "reporter" has got to be pretty embarrassed.

    I think coaching is in his DNA. However, I don't want him as the quarterbacks coach until he has experience.

    Honestly I'm thinking so I probably should have put "Report:" instead of Breaking before... However I still think this could be a possibility never know.

    What I heard might be happening is that he'll be picked up by Kelly to be an "analyst." If the NCAA allows teams to expand coaching rosters to 10, he'll be added as a QB coach.
