OT - Question for the Experts


#1

I’m drinking beer and shooting pool with a Notre Dummy on the first day of the Brian Kelly era. Does anyone know the exact date JoePa was named head coach?

I’m no expert…but February 19, 1966 (I first typed 1666 ;D)

Wow. According to Excel, that means it’s day 1 of the Brian Kelly era and day 16,001 of the Paterno era

Saw some of the Kelly press conference. To me, he seems a little “over board” in his Notre Dame love fest. He is not an alum. BUT, I would guess the Domers “ate it up.”

Kelly started out in politics. It’s the same skill set – alumni and high school recruits and their families require the same ability to sell yourself in – plus some Xs and Os (and not as much as we think). I think Kelly knows how to work a room.
