Notre Dame Football News: Brian Kelly Combats Florida Gators Coaching Job Questions With Sarcasm

Notre Dame Fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly used a trusty tool to combat rumors of potential interest in the Florida Gators head coaching job - sarcasm.

“I’m going to Florida — in about two weeks to get some sun,” Kelly said to, via NBC's College Football Talk. “I’m getting out of here with this weather. What are you, kidding me? So you can write that down. I’m going to Florida. Write it down now, get it out there get it on the news waves.”

When reporters tried to be even more direct in gauging Kelly's interest in becoming Will Muschamp's replacement, Kelly kept the joke going.

“Oh yeah. I’ve been interested in the Florida job,” Kelly said. “What else am I up for anything else? Can I be up for the Notre Dame job? Because we are 7-3 right now, [and] I’m hoping to hold on to this job.”

Translation being that Notre Dame likely has nothing to worry about when it comes to Kelly jumping ship to the SEC.
