In reply to: Why should ND be upset if Kelly is pursuing the NFL? posted by irishaddict
also told him he would be terminated if he did.
I don't know if the coach asked for permission but the Jets contacted BC prior to the interview as a courtesy.

If Swarbrick wants to replace Kelly for performance reasons that is a different case.
