    Brian Kelly

    Ok, whatever happens, happens. I'm not saying Weis deserves to be here or not and I don't want this to be brought up either... there are enough of those threads.

    If in fact Weis isn't coaching next year I have slowly thought about Kelly being the ND coach. There is a bit of intrigue to say the least.

    My question is is if we swing and miss on Kelly then would you rather have Weis or somebody else? I just hear a lot of talk about Kelly, but not much after that.

    This discussion may be taking place in a different thread, if so, I apologize.

    Some of the other names out there (other than Stoops and he who will never coach at ND):

    Gary Patterson - TCU head coach

    Jon Gruden

    Paul Johnson

    I personally don't like the idea of Johnson coming in although I know some others would enjoy having him at ND.

    Gruden I am skeptical on and I'm not sure how the players would take to him.

    Patterson I would be happy with - defensive minded coach and TCU has done pretty well on offense, too, recently. Understands the private school mentallity and has ties to Texas which could help ND get a foothold down there.

    There are some other names being thrown around, but I think these are the main ones...Yet none of this is coming from Swarbrick so the list could be different.

    This was posted on another site about Patterson and Stoops:
    Patterson comes from defensive coaching background and his defensive coordinator has ND roots and is nominated as assistant of the year nearly every year. The DC, Dick Bumpas, was known other then Bryant Young's dline coach in 91 and 92. This guy Patterson seems to always have a hard nosed defense, which seems to be our #1 missing element right now.

    In the case of Stoops, he comes from Catholic/Midwest roots and is reaching an "end of the honeymoon" stage with the Oklahoma faithful. He situation looks a like Holtz in 96, in that he won the NC early in his stint and now is beat up for anything less then top 5 seasons. Could not ask for a better season to give him a call and ask if he wants a change in scenary.
    I don't really like how he words the Stoops part cause it makes ND sound like South Carolina...although I suppose you could argue that that may be the case.

    I wouldn't mind seeing:
    Patterson - HC
    Bumpas - DC/LB coach
    Brown - DB coach
    Hart/Young - Dline

    That *should* lead to an improved defense.

    On offense I would definitely like to see at least Verducci and Alford retained.

    many of these messages have CW gone. ND would be crazy to let him go now, he is on the right track . missed assingments an so many missed tackles have done us in this year.. Motiavation each and every week seems to be lacking ...one week the D is up then the next week it's the O side , they have to get it going at the same time, hard to do I know ...But the talent is there.

    If you don't get a thoroughbred to gallop, then he's just a fu**ing horse.

    Talent being there means jack if you suck at coaching it.

    who exactly is responsible for these things, if not Charlie?

    I'm asking you kindly, please don't keep with the "Weis should stay" or "Weis should go". I was tired of these types of threads and still am. If this thread starts to turn into the others I will ask the Mods to close it. When starting this thread it was completely hypothetical that Weis was not the ND coach. I never said I wanted him gone, nor did I say I wanted him here. Completely hypothetical and that's it. Please lets keep it on track.

    Has Brian Kelly ever had to go up against the top coaches in the nation for recruits?

    Well, I'm sure he has been competing with Ohio State for in-state recruits, and right now we are in a competition with him for Matt James, so I would say yes.
