Kelly's ND record is strikingly consistent with his combined record at CMU and Cincinnati. He was then, and is now, a coach who ends up below .700 against FBS teams and below .650 against Power 5 teams.

To reach a contrary conclusion, one would have to cherry-pick Kelly's best seasons, say a bunch of Hail Marys like Gerry Faust, and hope against hope that Kelly's future includes only peaks and no valleys. Even coaches like Davie, Willingham and Weis had one or two seasons within the range of acceptable winning percentages, but they demonstrated an inability to sustain success, and so has Kelly.
