ESPN pundit Paul Finebaum shredded Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly for appearing to blame everybody but himself for the team’s abysmal start.

The outspoken college football pundit made an appearance on ESPN to interview with Hannah Storm, and he didn’t hold back with his criticism. (SLIDESHOW: Get College Football Started Right With These Top 25 Ranked Cheerleaders)

He said in part:

Let’s think about what Brian Kelly has done here in the last couple weeks. He blamed everyone on his team a couple weeks ago. He said he’d be re-evaluating. He blamed his defensive coordinator and fired him. He blamed his quarterback, who’s had a really nice year. And yesterday he called out the center, saying he had been snapping atrociously in the middle of a hurricane. You know, I’m beginning to wonder, who’s next for Brian Kelly to blame? Donald Trump?


The Fighting Irish are off to a 2-4 start and don’t appear to be trending up anytime soon. Unless Kelly finds a way to win the rest of his games on the schedule or come close to doing it then it’s almost certain he won’t be coaching Notre Dame next season.
