Hope he stays, but even if he leaves he's leaving UC in much better shape than when he came in.
Whatever happens happens. No matter what, UC is in a better place today than they were two years ago and can continue building on his successes.
UC can't keep him if Tennessee is going to throw stupid money at him. However, it is worth noting that this is coming from an anonymous source.

What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
By an anonymous source. I wouldn't think much of it till we hear it out of the AD's mouth. Rumors are rumors.

As a Florida fan I hope he stays put and the other rumor about Dantonio comes true.
I'm not really worried about it. So long as Brian Kelly is in Cincinnati, there will be an anonymous source every November and December claiming he's a candidate at x, y, z school.

As a Tennessee Alum, I'd be very pleased with Brian Kelly. We could do a lot worse. But he's no southerner and I don't think it'll be easy to pry him from UC. In the meantime, I hope he takes UC to the Big East Championship.
As for UC and life after Brian Kelly, my bet is they'll promote Kerry Coombs from within and keep the ball rolling. He's Cincinnati through and through and very energetic. I think UC's program will be fine.
Kerry Combs within the next 3 years would be nothing but a disappointment.

That's who I thought Michigan should have hired.

Kelly would be a bad fit at UT imo. They like their coaches genial and jolly. Not to say that he couldnt do a good job there. He very well could. I just do not see it. I keep thinking Mike Leach but he may be too far out for Knoxville and he may not want to leave Lubbock anyway. I'm surprised David Cutcliffe's name is not coming up more.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
I think Kelly would be a bad fit at a big program. He is the perfect type of coach for an up and coming school where scheme and style can bridge the talent gap. At UT he would be at the center of a huge fan base. Every move would be watched and dissected. At UC if he were to step out on the streets how many fans would notice him?
