Swarbrick denies contacting other coaches

Nov 28, 2009, 7:55 PM EDT

With rumors swirling around coaches like Bob Stoops and Brian Kelly, Jack Swarbrick once again shot down talk that the Irish have made contact with any coaches about a potential vacancy at Notre Dame.

“Anything you hear about a contact with a coach is absolutely wrong,” Swarbrick said.

Earlier this week, prominent college football writer Tony Barnhart mentioned that Bob Stoops may be meeting with Notre Dame brass about the job, and Brian Kelly fed Bob Griese some interesting information before the Cincinnati – Illinois game.

Swarbrick has been playing this very close to the vest, which is probably a good thing.

    1. we warned cft and pft and taylor and florio that these rumours about charlie and his staff and notre dame speaking with any other coaches were fraudulent.
    2. although he spoke out too late for himself and perhaps for the future of notre dame football, notre dame ad jack swarbrick has finally exposed all of these people as the lying con artists that they have always been.
    3. we are very happy that you and your staff will be back at notre dame central next season.
    4. cft and pft and taylor and florio are economic history.
    GO IRISH!!!

    If we have an AD that is stupid enough not to have contacted other coaches until now, he should be considered for termination too.

    In Swarbrick’s defense, Montana, his statement is incredibly vague. It doesn’t say that no one contacted a coach. Just that what you’ve heard about a contact is wrong. Also, what about contacting a coach’s agent?
    We need Robert T. Gilleran’s outstanding deposition questioning skills to be sure that Swarbrick gets nailed down about whether the Irish have made any efforts to communicate with any person or any person’s agent about coaching the football team next year.

    2. You are the equivalent of Hamilton Burger while everyone else who posts here is comparatively Perry Mason.
    3. In your posts, you speak of “we”. Who do you purport to be a spokesperson for?
    4. However, I’d like to speak to you in language you may understand.
    5. Thus, congratulations to the Irish for taking down Stanford, 38-45.

    I will say it again, Jon Gruden will be he new head coach at ND and believe me if he makes that move, Jimmy Clausen will stay at ND and the Heisman winner will come from ND next year, but it could be Golden Tate should he too decide to stay at ND. If not, it will be Clausen. Knute Rockne must be rolling in his grave after the season they had this year.

    I think the ideal replacemant for CW would be Pete Carroll. If the ND administration would do this maybe robertg would implode and put us out of our misery. It might negatively impact SC for about an hour if they could get Norm back.
    Go Irish!!!!!
