See where The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman ranks Brian Kelly among the top 10 coaches in college football
The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman released his top 25 coaches in college football (subscription required) and LSU’s Brian Kelly made the top 10.
Feldman ranked Kelly eighth, calling him a “consistent winner.” Feldman noted Kelly’s quick turnaround at LSU and the fact that he’s now won 10 games in six straight years.
Eight is a fair ranking for Kelly. Feldman has him behind the likes of Kirby Smart and Nick Saban, just as most would. Also above Kelly are Lincoln Riley and James Franklin. Arguments could be made that Kelly is in the same class as those two as all are still chasing that elusive first national title.
Kelly’s had 11 seasons with double-digit wins at the FBS level. He’ll look to add another in 2023 with an LSU roster some think is good enough to compete for a national title.
Talented groups like this are the reason he took the job at LSU. If Kelly were to win the big one. he’d cement his legacy as one of the all-time greats.
