If we get Stoops, we need to bring in a young hot-shot OC to be a Coach-In-Waiting. Fisch is not any of those things. You never know. We offer a lot more than Nebraska. Obviously, we can't offer him one thing they can, but that might not be enough. Fair enough. Now that you mention it, I agree about Fisch. I think Fisch is a better choice if (for some reason) we retain Mac. For Stoops, yes, we'd probably need to hire a younger guy like Spavital (probably be my #1 choice as a coach-in-waiting), Cumbie or even Graham Harrell. 10 minutes ago, jrry32 said: Why? He has no connection to Notre Dame and was our DC here under Spurrier when we won a NC. If Stoops wants to coach again, I think Florida will be near the top of the list (if not #1). I'd be happy with that if (as I said before) he does what he did at OU with Lincoln Riley.(hires an up-and-coming OC to be his predecessor) One name that I think fits there is Sterlin Gilbert. Jake Spavital is another intriguing name. Wes Phillips is a name from the NFL that would be worth monitoring as an OC. This. I see no clear reason why Stoops would want ND over UF. IIRC, Stoops is still close with Spurrier and with him now in the UF athletic department, it only increases our chances.
