There’s a good chance no one shows up to Brian Kelly’s early morning team meeting on Tuesday.
On Monday night, it was revealed that Kelly would leave Notre Dame for LSU, where he will be paid $15 million/year to become the Tigers’ next head coach.

Brian Kelly to LSU confirmed. @PeteThamel first. Hearing salary will be in $15 million per year range. DC Marcus Freeman obvious ND interim but also could be auditioning. Is this Matt Campbell's time?

After news broke of his departure, Kelly sent a text to Notre Dame players and told them he would talk to them in person at a 7 am team meeting.
Just now Brian Kelly messaged Notre Dame’s roster in Team Works that “I will be leaving Notre Dame.”
The plan is for Kelly to meet with the team tomorrow at 7 a.m.

College football fans had some hilarious reactions to Kelly scheduling a 7 am team meeting to say goodbye to tell players that he’s ditching.
Left them in the middle of a playoff run and than calls a 7am meeting. Come on son. https://t.co/PjKqHPhOW1

lol Brian Kelly called/is still scheduling a 7 AM meeting to tell his team that he just jumped ship while they’re in the middle of the season and still have a chance to win a national title.
REALLY hope nobody shows up to that shit. Sleep through that alarm, dudes. https://t.co/DFJpxzUnl1

What's worse, being broke up with over text or a mandatory meeting with your ex at 7am for them to explain? https://t.co/Y6DafcsU3M
