    Title says it all, how much longer do you think Kelly will be with ND? And also what kind of coach would you like to see at Notre Dame next?

    I think he’ll get the extension, but he’ll go out on his own terms within the next 5 years. He’ll continue to do just good enough to not get fired because winning NC’s is no longer the mandate. It’s enough to be in the conversation.

    I think ND is still gun shy from the Davie, Willingham and Weis years. I think Kelly is just good enough to not get fired. But I think ND wishes it had worked out with Urban Meyer before the mess at OSU.

    Yeah hang around but I just don't see Notre Dame winning a National Championship under Kelly.

    I would agree with that if there was a lot of time left in his contract. And it’s also the reason why he was given passes for many 8-5 seasons, Declan Sullivan several academic scandals, and the routine embarrassing performances on the national stage.

    At some point you need some consistency to build a program and you can’t have a coaching carousel every 3 years. Which is why he’ll leave the program better then he found it, but he’s just not good enough to win it all and won’t do the heavy lifting to recruit a championship Team.

    Anyone think Tom Clements would be a good choice to be the next head coach. He was a great player at ND, worked under some good head coaches in the NFL. Extremely smart and actually had been promoted to the position of assistant head coach at Green Bay (whatever that means).

    Urbam Meyer will be the popular choice as his replacement IMO.

    lol. there's little chance, and he'd never last. he won't be able to recruit anyone at notre dame like he did at ohio state and florida. his offensive schemes seem archaic. he just has massive talent.

    nope. no chance kelly's going anywhere, unless he quits, despite what his critics think, and with all due respect to clements, he has never held a head coaching job.
