Uproven? Yes. Especially at the level of the SEC. But I disagree with the rest of your first paragraph.
Jones and Kelly were both at CMU for three years, and Jones's final year at CMU was more successful than Kelly's final year. When Kelly departed CMU, he left behind a bare bones defense (and that might be an understatement). While Kelly left great offensive talent, there was absolutely nothing in regards to veteran defensive talent. Jones got CMU to consecutive eight win seasons despite having to completely rebuild much of the defensive unit, and in his final year put together a top 25 team. Like CMU, Kelly bolted from Cincy and left behind a lot of holes to fill. Jones has been steadily improving at Cincy from when he took over. The funny thing is, at both CMU and Cincy, Kelly did not stick around long enough to prove that he is good over the long-haul; that he can not only bring in talent but also develop that talent on both sides of the ball over a long period of time without a downturn. In both cases, he seemed to bolt just when a lot of holes were going to need filling and left that job to the next guy.

Might as well bring Cincy into the Big 10 if Stripling becomes coach. I think he has been an assistant with every team in the Big 10 at some point.
Hopefully, Jim Chaney is not retained and MSU hires him...
