Is This the Cyclones' New Coach?

Here is the latest on the Iowa State coaching hunt. Central Michigan's Brian Kelly reportedly is meeting Saturday with Iowa State president Gregory Geoffroy. It will be a busy two days for the Chippewas coach, who leads his troops Friday in the regular-season finale at Buffalo. Then it's off to Ames and, presumably, back to Mount Pleasant to prepare his team for Thursday's Mid-American Conference championship game against Ohio at Ford Field in Detroit. Kelly is 17-16 in three seasons as Central Michigan's coach, but his record doesn't tell the story. The Chippewas were without an winless season since 1998, but all that changed in Kelly's second season when the team finished 6-5. The rejuvenation continued this season and it appears Central Michigan is headed for a bowl game. Michigan State also has been courting Kelly, but the Spartans' search appears stuck in neutral. Thanks to the Midwest Correspondent for the tip!
