Not only is Notre Dame meeting with Cincinnati's Brian Kelly on Tuesday (a report he confirmed, via his Twitter account, of course), but they are also set to interview Stanford's Jim Harbaugh, according to Pete Thamel.â†µ
Notre Dame’s athletic director, Jack Swarbrick, is scheduled to meet or has met with Cincinnati Coach Brian Kelly and Stanford Coach Jim Harbaugh, a person briefed on the search said. The meetings are taking place in New York City, where many coaches and administrators are visiting for end-of-season gatherings. [...]â†µ
While Kelly was regarded as the leading candidate, Harbaugh’s name is a little more surprising. When reached on his cellphone Monday afternoon, Harbaugh did not deny the meeting.â†µ
“Not now or not in the future will I talk about any other jobs or opportunities,” he said. “I’m out recruiting right now.”â†µ
Thamel reports that the Notre Dame job will "most likely be filled this week."
