Why should ND be upset if Kelly is pursuing the NFL?

It's pretty clear that at this point neither side wants (or in ND's case should want) to be in this relationship.

It saves both sides quite a bit of face if Kelly gets an NFL job. Hell, ND might even get some cash out of it from an NFL team. ND is a much more attractive job at this current juncture with it's current head coach (despite a mediocre record) obtaining an NFL job than firing Kelly next year after going 7-5 again. Not to mention it's pretty unusual for a college coach to get fired for looking at NFL jobs. Chip Kelly did it twice and Oregon certainly wasn't thinking of jettisoning him.

That being said, I would have no problem if Kelly was fired for his performance in the second half of 2014. I just don't think it should be because he (or his agent) are pursuing an NFL escape route that would benefit both sides.
