02:24 AM ET 01.10 | Before the BCS Championship game, Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly said that he was flattered by the NFL attention he as getting, but he had no intention of leaving what he called his dream job. Then, after getting his brains bashed in by the Alabama Crimson Tide, it appears that Kelly has had a change of heart as Chris Mortensen reports Kelly has interviewed with the Philadelphia Eagles. According to the report, Kelly had previously interviewed with the Eagles and the two sides plan on revisiting the interview once Kelly returns to the country. And yes, 'Bama fans, now is the apporiate time to make your "Brian Kelly skipped the country because we beat him" commentary. Kelly can say that he didn't leave the country because of what happened in the BCS title game, but he also said he wasn't interested in any NFL jobs so there's no believing a word he says.

Stay in school, Brian.

Of course he wants to go to the pros. He won't have to sit through another chorus of Rammer Jammer in the NFL.

He's just trying to force a salary increase out of ND.

And will likely succeed.

He's not going anywhere.

Most likely. Just looking for leverage.

Still, if he does change his tune and leave after that spanking 'Bama administered, nobody should take him seriously again. I'd hesitate to hire a coach who appears to be running away with his tail between his legs.

Kelly got a early look at the NFL by watching the Bama OL and DL dominate his team and now he thinks he might like it there.

You can't Bama.... stay in the NCAA ranks for your own good.
