    This originally was a post on Rock’s House, but I figured the more info the better.

    First, let’s establish where you were on Monday night before all this happened:

    (a) I liked Brian Kelly as a hire originally and still like him

    (b) I liked Brian Kelly as a hire originally but now have my doubts

    (c) I didn’t like Brian Kelly as a hire originally, but feel better about him now

    (d) I didn’t like Brian Kelly as a hire originally and still don’t

    Now, how has the last week affected you?

    (1) Brian Kelly interviewing with the Eagles doesn’t bother me at all. This is a business and he has a right to look out for himself. He’ll probably do it again, and it won’t bother me then either.

    (2) Brian Kelly interviewing with the Eagles doesn’t bother me at all. This is a business and he has a right to look out for himself. He’ll probably do it again, and it won’t bother me then either as long as he keeps winning.

    (3) Brian Kelly interviewing with the Eagles right now doesn’t bother me at all. This is a business and he has a right to look out for himself. But if he makes a habit out of this, it’s going to bother me.

    (4) Brian Kelly interviewing with the Eagles bothers me. I understand this is a business and he has a right to look out for himself, but when you interview for your next job at the first sign of success at your current job, it doesn’t make your current job look very good. I’m willing to look past this one, but if he does it again, it’s going to affect how I feel about him.

    (5) Brian Kelly interviewing with the Eagles bothers me. I understand this is a business and he has a right to look out for himself, but when you interview for your next job at the first sign of success at your current job, it doesn’t make your current job look very good. This has affected how I feel about him, and I don’t hold him in as high regard as I did before.

    (6) Brian Kelly interviewing with the Eagles bothers me. I don’t care if this is a business, ND coaches are expected to be better than the rest. I’m willing to look past this one, but if he does it again, it’s going to affect how I feel about him.

    (8) Brian Kelly interviewing with the Eagles pisses me off. I don’t care if this is a business, ND coaches are expected to be better than the rest. He may win going forward, but he’s lost me personally.

    (9) Brian Kelly interviewing with the Eagles pisses me off. I don’t care if this is a business, ND coaches are expected to be better than the rest. Jack should have fired him rather than let him string ND along for four days.
