Hopefully, Mardy Gilyard will forgive Brian Kelly someday. The Cincinnati receiver and the former Cincinnati coach did a lot for one another, and their relationship shouldn't end with Gilyard seething over Kelly's decision to take the Notre Dame job.
Gilyard has every right to be angry. Kelly wasn't entirely honest with the Bearcats. If he had been, he would have told them all along that Notre Dame was his dream job and that he probably would take the job if granted the opportunity. But no coach would say that, just as some of the guys playing for Cincinnati probably would be loath to admit that they always dreamed of playing for Ohio State.
