Notre Dame's Head Coach, Brian Kelly, will enter the 2013 season with a team that should be even better than this year's, which is why he may be under even more pressure to deliver the National Championship. The Fighting Irish met a team that was bigger, more experienced and more determined to prove themselves the better team. And they were. And they might be so again in 2013.
Chip Kelly decided to keep his job at Oregon, passing up the NFL and the Big Paydays and Big Headaches that come with the Big Time. He makes plenty of money where he is, so there is no need to take a crappy job with a crappy NFL team. Because the NFL is interested in him, and because he interviews with the Pros, his value and stature at Oregon only increases. His job there is secure. Perhaps some year a great NFL job will open up but he really doesn't have to worry about that.
