Whats next for Notre Dame

    With the recent news of Meyer going to Florida, where does Notre Dame turn now? Who are the top candidates out there and who do you think is next in line....

    Here is my opinion....

    Bobby Petrino (very possible, probably hottest coach left out there)
    Jeff Tedford (possible, rumors he is looking to leave Cal)
    Charlie Weiss (Notre Dame grad)
    Dan Hawkins (44-6 at Boise)
    Jon Gruden (long shot)
    Lou Holtz (Does anyone think he will stay retired?)

    It has shocked me that Meyer turned down the Irish, but that just supports what many of us believe and thats the simple fact that the academic requirements at ND almost make it impossible to be a top 5 program in this era of college football, it will take a great coach and more than just three years to get that program in the top 25 on a regular basis.

    Gruden and Holtz can be crossed off that list.

    They may make a run at Chow but I think he is Stanford's to lose..

    Petrino is a prime candidate...

    Tedford is a pipe dream but you never know

    Ron Turner or Gerry Dinardo??? A second tier program needs a second tier coach.

    All kidding aside, the ND coaching position is turning into a dead end job. I hope Petrino, Tedford and Hawkins stay put for their own career's sake.

    Look for ND to bring in an NFL guy (just speculation, no sources to back up).

    BTW...congrats to our own "Alan" for breaking the Urban Meyer story before the other major news sources!

    They gotta empty the bank and go after either Tedford or Chow....

    If not, theyre in trouble IMO.

    Chow was lost as an option for ND when they fired Ty. No way can the admins afford to come out of this with anything but a high-profile coach (with actual HC experience).
