Tuesday on 2 Pros and Cup of Joe, Brady Quinn tells Jonas Knox and LaVar Arrington what he was hearing on the day leading up to Brian Kelly leaving Notre Dame for LSU, and why the timing of the departure was classless.

Brady Quinn: "This was about money. This was about ego. Him looking at LSU and saying, 'I've played against them. I know the hurdles you have to jump over at Notre Dame vs LSU to recruit and I want to try and go win a National Championship.' And he might feel like he has a better chance there, but the irony of it is his team could literally be playing for one this year and really the next two years. And I think the way he did it was more about his ego and how he feels he was treated at times at Notre Dame...
At the end of the day, you don't leave the way he did, leaving a recruits house after this news breaks, and having other coaches out there who are on the road recruiting; you don't leave in a classless way like that, after becoming the all-time winningest coach, unless there's more to it and you want to try to spurn, or try and do this in a conniving way."
