Assessing Brian Kelly
Alright, I'm pretty bored right now and have some down time so I thought this would be an interesting thread idea.
Before I go into detail about it, if a thread like this currently exists, Mods go ahead and delete this...
So we are now two years into BK's tenure. Do we think he was the right hire? Is he a good fit for Notre Dame? Has he done well so far.
Take the role of Jack Swarbrick and give a coach report card of sorts on Coach Kelly.
Criteria to grade on would be:
On field performance
Maintaining image of the program (players not getting into trouble)
Keeping school spirit up (almost impossible NOT to at ND. By this I mean are the pep rallies he has good? I haven't been to one yet, sadly.)
Potential to improve.
And whatever else you feel is appropriate.
Do you think BK is the man for the job. Will ND be brought back to prominence by BK? Will the next coach do something with BK's players? Asses his job security.
Go, go, go!

Yes I think he is the man for the job, I just hope the administartion continues to be patient long enough for things to turn around fully. It is getting there slowly but surely IMO.
I'm too drunk to taste this chicken.

I think BK has got the program on the upswing. Recruiting has been as good as I can ever remember. He's getting program defining defensive recruits. The QB quandary is going to be the defining decision thus far. I think he has the program on the way to being competetive year in and year out. I believe he is the coach to bring this program and university back to where it once was, dominant

I like what Kelly brings. I think he could be the guy who if nothing else gets the right kind of players in and makes ND competitive. I think he should at least get another 2 years, preferably a lot more.

I love what Bk has done so far. Changing the culture, recruiting the front 7. But this is Notre Dame and i am sick of not winning. Wasn't like there wasn't talent on this roster. On Field I would give it a C. I haven't seen the Cinnci stuff like he was doing. I know this stuff takes time. but on field has been a disappointing for me so far. Better days are coming i realize that with changing the culture. I hate the way the Dayne Crist thing was handled and some comments he has made. Do I think he is the right man for the job? Yes no doubt. Was he the right hire? Maybe. I would have still rode my bike to Norman to pick up Bob Stoops and help him back for South Bend though.

Agreed GB on field is disappointing. I think the year after this we will see his Cinci style of play. I thought the Dayne Crist thing was also handled poorly as well as some other things, I like what he's doing on the recruiting trail though. I think he can handle the job, and will make us winners again, maybe not on a NC level. While he can do the job, I wonder what if we got Stoops, or Gruden, or someone else. Future is bright IMO
