Report: LSU is expected to hire Brian Kelly

USA TODAY Sports

The “maybe” apparently has disappeared.

Bruce Feldman of TheAthletic.com reports that LSU is expected to hire Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly, and that an announcement could come as soon as Tuesday.

This becomes the latest crazy college football coaching development in recent days, following the news that Lincoln Riley has left Oklahoma for USC.

Unless Notre Dame has an alternative plan in place that will be quickly implemented (like Luke Fickell of Cincinnati to Notre Dame), the possibility of Urban Meyer finally returning to South Bend will gain momentum. It will be interesting to see what Meyer has to say about the situation, if/when he’s asked about it during a press conference.

  1. Amazing that ND has a good season and all of the sudden he wants to go to LSU, in spite of having not really met expectations recently…

    Sounds like Brian Kelly is trying to squeeze some guaranteed dollars from ND more than he wants to actually go to LSU. ND should call his bluff. Lots of good coaches would want to have nationally televised games every week and support from boosters that pay big money.

  2. Yeah because he did so much at Notre Dame. He won’t last in the SEC.

    Yea all he did was become the winningest coach at one of the most prestigious colleges in the country.

    And Lou Holtz will always be more beloved cause at least he won something

    Yeah, playing cupcakes. How did they do in the college football playoff? Not good.

  5. Diehard Irish fan from Boston (I’m a Boston university hockey guy, so I hate BC).

    Brian took us as far as possible. With our academic standards, Brian drained the well. It sucks he’s going to the SEC, but his blue collar Boston blood will bode well for the recruiting.

    I assume we go after Luke Fickell or promote our DC.

    Either way, does anyone remember this type of coaching carousel like this?! NEVER do I recall an off-season of this magnitude.

  6. Urban Meyer to ND. This is it. Brian Kelly was a great coach but Meyer will take it to the next level. It’s now or never

    He accomplished more than Nick Saban did at Michigan State and Saban did ok at LSU

  8. All of you hating on Brian Kelly and this hire don’t know much about football. He has education standards at Notre Dame that end up being restrictions on the type of players he can get into the school, yet he ends up 10-2 or 11-1 every year still. Now he has zero restrictions and access to the athletes in the SEC. This is a game changer for LSU. National title to LSU by the end of his first full recruitment class.

  9. I’m pretty sure Urban destroyed his chances with ND after that little bar incident a while back.
