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
Dan Patrick: 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.
DP: 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.
DP: 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.
