Bruce Feldman says Kelly is NCAA coach most likely to NFL

As a preface, I don't like Kelly. I never really have for many reasons. I won't restate them all here. But, I am predisposed to wanting him to go.
So, now my question ...
Who here thinks we are ready to secure a viable replacement if he leaves?
I don't. Nothing about the 2008 and 2009 postseason encourages me to think we'd get the next hire right. And, nothing before Swarbrick's tenure makes me believe ND does this well at all.
We'll screw it up again.
You just articulated my greatest fear in this situation. *
Is anyone really prepared to secure a viable replacement?
Would you rather have an interim coach?
Only if it was necessary to get the right guy, long-term *
Another problem with an interim is..........
I like that Mullen coached under Meyer. But I don't know
No one should stay in a broken relationship out of fear...
Gary Patterson *
We are due to hire a good one by accident. Like USC
I think we're looking
How can you charactorize Kelly's tenure as a "debacle"? *
I should've clarified
Any non Irish available ?
You will likely be right for the wrong reasons.
I agree about how hard it is to find a replacement for Kelly
The timing could be right for Stoops...
Whittingham is 14-22 since Utah moved to Pac 12.
You want to pull numbers to prove a point?
He lacks major program experience.
His teams compete extremely well with about 50% of the
I doubt Stoops has any interest
I'm right there with you. The only consensus no brainers are
I do not claim to know the inner workings of the ND
OSU adroitly had Luke Fickell man the store until UM
OSU adroitly fell into some dumb luck. *
The timing of Tressel's ouster meant it
Tend to agree but
If by 'viable' you mean upper echelon -
Which ND coaching hires fit your definition?
Devine and Holtz clearly qualified as upper-echelon
Interesting that they were both failed pro coaches. Not sure
So were Carroll and Saban
Dan Mullen seems like the obvious low-hanging fruit hire
Why do you assume Mullen is low hanging fruit?
Meh. I hope it's not him. *
I'd be pretty happy with him also.
Even that's giving him too much credit.
If he hadn't, he wouldn't be on anybody's list
He's a "candidate" precisely because he's done very well
I have a bad feeling that mitquinn has it right *
I bet Fitz would stand us up
