As an ND fan (who went to the Massacre in Miami), I am not happy about this.

Maybe Kelly can do UB a favor and hire Jeff Quinn.  Unlike Syracuse, we would dance in the streets if Quinn left.

Hopefully, this is all it is, but I hate how these coaches play the game:

Ian Rapoport@RapSheet
Possible... RT @SIPeteThamel A Notre Dame source tells me that the expected result of Kelly's NFL flirtation is a raise and an extension.

Awesome!  At the game, during every timeout, they would go on the field and give somebody a big check - mostly for charity, but at halftime (I think) somebody won $1M from the Florida lottery.

So, we were joking about when is it our time to go on the field.  Now is MY time!

Wake up the cash register. MT @SIPeteThamel Notre Dame source tells me expected result of Kelly's NFL flirtation is a raise & an extension.

Another good take

If there is one school who definitely has the $ to give it to him, its this one...

If this was all about leverage for a pay increase, why the charade?

Couldn't Kelly have sat down with the AD and said,

"The football team surpassed all expectations. No one expected us to be undefeated and ranked number one. We're gonna have another great recruiting class in here and we've brought this program back to national prominence. I feel I deserve a raise. What do you think?"

It seems like he could have taken a different more virtuous approach (this is Notre Dame isn't it?) if this was simply about getting more compensation.

They did get burned by giving Weis an extension who they're paying til 2015.  If Marrone really was the guy the Bills wanted i'm glad they got it done quickly.  Seems like a few teams are going to have to hire their 3-4 choices.

Me too.  I will admit that I am not the biggest Kelly booster but ND needs some stability, recruiting is going great and I don't want the boat rocked.  I also don't see Kelly in the NFL but what do I know.

I also know nothing about Marrone but I do agree with the post about the Bills doing a good job of signing the guy they wanted.  

My prediction is Lovie lands on his feet in Philly,  I would imagine the Eagles fans would appreciate the know how he would bring to their under performing D.  Who am I kidding, Eagles fans won't like anyone they sign.

As a HUGE ND fan this totally sucks.  We have the #1 recruiting in the country.  This interview could cause a lot of guys to change there mind.
I am so disappointed with the loss and now this.  WOW. just WOW!

The recruiting class is what I'm worried about, too.  I heard both Bulldog and Coach Sal last week talk about Marrone possibly being interviewed by the Bills as a favor by Russ, to "let recruits know he has contacts in the league."  Somebody also said something similar about Chip Kelly............If that is any positive at all, it's dwarfed by the recruits saying WTF - I thought you loved it here??

Don't worry.  Like Penn St. and Oregon some wealthy booster will come along and throw a few million his way to keep him at ND and convince Kelly his desire to stay at the school and finish the job.  No violation of the sacred NCAA rules here with more or less bribery on one side and extortion on the other.  Just make sure no player takes a free stick of gum or a pencil or the NCAA will come down hard on your program with sanctions to protect the non-professional status of college sports.  Gotta love it!!

He's a POS.  He embarasses his players and sent a kid to die.  I actually kinda like ND but I despise him.  I'd love him to try screaming in a NFL player's face like he does to college kids.
