Cincinnati 125 for 125 | # 4 Brian Kelly

Head Coach | 2007-09

I have a feeling that this is not going to be a popular pick with you, my fellow Bearcats. But it is what it is. Yes the way that he left was deplorable. I will never forgive him for doing that. But the fact of the matter is still this. He won 11 games a year, claimed two conference crowns and the only BCS berths in the programs history and generally vaulted Cincinnati Football into the sportsman's collective consciousness for the first time ever. Thats not nothing.

I know that there are UC fans who will never get over what Brian Kelly did and the way that he did it. But it takes a lot of blind hate not to see this man for what he really was. A damn good coach and easily the best thing to happen to Cincinnati Football since Sid Gillman prowled the home side at Nippert.
