Yep, we’re the very, very last to ‘report’ this. And very proud of it.
Not once did we announce some other candidate (well, we did try to get the “Louis Nix as Player-Coach” thing going). We didn’t just keep guessing, calling it fact, and we didn’t make anything up and ‘report’ it. (Yep, I’m tooting the HLS horn here, because I think we’re 1 of 3 that didn’t get all mixed up in it.) MANTRA was great, it served its purpose. I’m really happy it’s gone.
We’re 1 for 1 in calling who this would be, cuz we’re calling it now: Brian Kelly.
Lots more to talk about – with the search and the selection – but for now…Welcome to the Notre Dame family Coach Kelly!
(ps – if Kelly Green isn’t the formal ND fan color for games now – if we can’t rally the fans to all wear that color now- it will never, ever happen)
