Layden went into the last game of his fifth year ranked number 1, having won 77% of his games as coach of Notre Dame. He finished that year ranked 5th. He finished his fourth year ranked 9th.

Kelly went into the last game of his fifth year riding a three game losing streak and one of the worst defensive stretches in Notre Dame football. He was 7-4 and sinking fast. That was after finishing

I don't see a need to speculate on whether I'd keep him after 2016 because there's no logic in keeping him after 2014.
