Report: Bears not interested in Brian Kelly

AP

On Wednesday night, multiple reports emerged almost spontaneously and simultaneously that the Eagles are interested in Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly.

The feeding frenzy spawned a suggestion that the Bears are interested, too.  However, Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Kelly is not a candidate to coach the Bears.

Maybe G.M. Phil Emery realizes that Kelly is simply hoping to finagle more money from the Fighting Irish.  Or maybe Emery simply isn’t looking for a college coach; none of his 13 candidates come from that level of the sport.

Regardless, Jensen says that Kelly won’t be making the relatively short trek from South Bend to Chicago.
