Brian Kelly is in his tenth season as the Notre Dame head coach. In all but one of those previous nine seasons, he’s made a bowl game. Five of those seasons, he finished in the Top 25. In four of those seasons, he’s won ten games. Two of those seasons were undefeated.
For most coaches at most programs, that’s a legendary career. In fact, it only took four seasons of similar results for Kelly to make the Cincinnati Bearcats Hall of Fame. However, he’s missing something at Notre Dame — major wins.
Sure, Kelly is an impressive 6-3 over USC, but those aren’t the big wins Kelly is missing.
