There is no way any coach can truly be ready for the media storm that awaits Brian Kelly now that he has left Cincinnati to take over the Notre Dame football program.
Every move he makes on and off the field, every word he speaks, every hand gesture, heck, even the socks he wears will be analyzed and then over analyzed.
That's the passion of Notre Dame football.
"It is very unique," said Tom Skiba, the treasurer of the Notre Dame Club of Fort Wayne. "You have to deal with the Catholic university. You have to deal with very powerful alumni clubs. You have to deal with the media. … Will he be used to it? Nobody's used to it.
"I think (Kelly) will do a good job, but I think nobody's ready for the scrutiny at Notre Dame."
