|Note Dame Football Coach Search Underway
|SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick says he has started contacting the candidates to replace fired coach Charlie Weis.
Swarbrick would not say how many people he has talked to, but says he didn't begin contacting candidates until Tuesday. He wouldn't comment on any of the names widely reported as possible replacements for Weis. He also says the search could take him out of town as early as Wednesday.
Swarbrick spent part of the day talking with Notre Dame assistant coaches about the football program.
