Brian Kelly, the Central Michigan coach who was a candidate for the openings at Iowa State and Michigan State, finally got his job at a BCS school. He told his team Sunday that he would become the coach at Cincinnati and would not coach the Chippewas in the Motor City Bowl against Middle Tennessee State. Kelly will be introduced at a Monday afternoon press conference. In other coaching developments, the Newark Star-Ledger reported that Rutgers' Greg Schiano would talk with Miami about its opening. The Bergen Record earlier reported that Rutgers is preparing a new 10-year deal worth $20 million for Schiano. The Miami Herald also reported that Texas Tech's Mike Leach would be interested in becoming the Miami coach, but he has yet to be contacted by Hurricane officials.
Update: Walt Harris has been fired by Stanford.
