One of the greatest football seasons in University of Cincinnati history may end on a sour note.

According to IrishCentral.com, UC's Brian Kelly will be the next Notre Dame coach. IrishCentral.com is also the Internet home of Irish Voice and Irish America magazines.

Reporter Sean O'Shea writes that a well-informed person says that Kelly is expected to sign a deal soon. UC (11-0) plays at Pittsburgh on Saturday, with the winner claiming the Big East Conference championship and a spot in a BCS bowl game.

I hope it happens; Kelly seems like a solid choice. But, another piece I read today said Bob Stoops had already secretly signed a deal to become Notre Dame's next coach. So, who knows?

My son is a student at Notre Dame and a member of the Band of the Fighting Irish. Looks like he won't have to worry about traveling to a bowl game this year. :)

He must be getting alot more money. Why else would you leave an undefeated team with an outside shot at a National Championship in order to go take over that perennial loser ND ?

I was kinda hoping that Gruden would get the nod.

I’m starting to think that ND just can’t compete with the big 40K student schools.

They had some good history.

This was a comment of the article on another site:

dale Posted December 2, 2009 at 6:04 PM This report is completely false. Kelly reported on 700WLW in Cincinnati this morning that he’s staying in Cincinnati and not pursuing the Notre Dame job. Report is also that he is signing a 10 year extension worth 5 mil a year.

Yes, correct on the contract with UC but I sure Kelly stays at my Bearcats.

My question too - It will be hard for the team during the rest of the season knowing he is bailing....

He’s a winner, but it’s going to be weird, and depressing, to see the spread offense at Notre Dame.

Hard to believe Cinn. can pony up $5 mm a year for a football coach. That is NFL level head coach salary.

I’m sorry. I missed the “Caucus” designation in the title.

I wish that was the case. You know WLW would be splashing a scoop like that on the air and their web page. Also the Enquirer would do a follow up.

There is no mention of a 10 mil deal at either.

He would be a homerun hire for the golden domers, but I doubt there has been much talk between Kelly and ND so far. Maybe after this week they will talk but as of now their is too much at stake for Cincinnati to allow their coach to talk to anybody.
