Welcome to the world of college football. Things can change very quickly and there are plenty of curveballs. Imagine telling someone a year ago that Brian Kelly would be the coach at LSU.
I’m not sure anyone would have believed you. Yet, here we are. He’s leaving South Bend for the SEC.

Not only is Kelly leaving for the Tigers, but he’s also getting an outrageous amount of money to do it. Earning north of $100 million will make him one of the highest paid coaches in America.
It’s an unbelievable amount of money.
Just now Brian Kelly messaged Notre Dame’s roster in Team Works that “I will be leaving Notre Dame.”
The plan is for Kelly to meet with the team tomorrow at 7 a.m.

This is one of the biggest hires in recent college football history, and expectations will be insanely high for Kelly.
Nick Saban is 2-0 against Brian Kelly with a combined score of 73-28.
LSU fans might want to slow down a little bit before they start counting all their upcoming national titles.
As long as Saban is coaching, the SEC goes through Tuscaloosa.
