NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL COACH
After leading Cincinnati to a No. 3 BCS ranking, the 48-year-old suburban Boston native was hired to replace Charlie Weis in December
When did you realize that when you say something at Notre Dame it's different than when you said something at Cincinnati?
Brian Kelly: When there's 55 media people at my spring practice on a Tuesday. I don't think I saw 55 at Cincinnati in three years.
How different is your offense from the one that Charlie Weis ran?
BK: I don't know that it's very different other than terminology.
If I'm a Notre Dame fan, I think I want to hear the new coach say, "It's going to be a lot different; we're going to score a lot more points."
BK: I don't know that the offense was a problem. My job coming in is to get our defense to play better football, and I think we have.
