Coaching search

Mark Bosbous | Tuesday, December 8, 2009

 I have never felt compelled to write in or publicly express my feelings about our great University and its football dilemma until now. I have always respected the position of Notre Dame on academics and athletics and believe strongly that we can win and be a relevant force in the FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) while maintaining academic standards. Having said this we have some to point in our programs history where we need a leader, a proven winner, someone who knows how to motivate and be motivated. I myself liked Charlie Weis but I believe that despite his great football mind he lacked that intangible that takes teams to a higher level. We have great players and they should settle for nothing less than greatness.

That is why I am asking the our great university and our administration to go get a winner and go get Brian Kelly. Don’t settle for less, don’t settle for a mid-level coach who handles crises well. Get a motivator, a coach and leader. Get us Brian Kelly. At the end of the day it always comes down to the players and their production on the field but it’s preparation and coaching that leads to production.
Go Irish!
