That's a really good hire for BC. Obviously benefits from the fact he's from the area and lives there now. He'll keep them competitive enough to keep BC happy, but likely not competitive enough to make him attractive at a blue-blood.

UCLA must be a disaster

The rumors were that he would have been a lame-duck coach - produce big or be fired. So he left ahead of the pitchforks.

Kelly was Ryan Day's OC when he was QB at NH and his first coaching job after school, and then plucked Day from a dead end OC role at BC under Addazio and brought him to Philly and then SF as his QB coach, which lead him to getting the OSU OC job and where he is now.  So its a demotion but also going to work with/for one of his mentees.

I also think it further shows what a disaster UCLA's athletic department is.  I also wonder if Kelly, at 60, is just sick of being a HC.  Would rather just creatively scheme offense and call plays and do it with someone he is close with. And I imagine they won't make him recruit much cause Hartline is the ace in the hole with that.

I think Kelly wants to be in the NFL to end his career and this is a better route than getting fired at UCLA next year.

Can't afford to pay players, though.

ESPN and the College Football Playoff are in agreement on a six-year, $7.8 billion extension that will make the network the home of the 12-team tournament through the 2031-32 season once CFP leaders sort out the specifics of how the postseason’s new era will operate, sources briefed on the deal told The Athletic.
