One of the names on the periphery of the discussion for potential replacements for Charlie Weis at Notre Dame has been Phil Fulmer.
According to a colleague of Fulmer’s, the former Tennessee head coach would like to move from the periphery and into the realm of serious discussion.
Speaking to the Chicago Sun-Times, recruiting analyst Tom Lemming, who works with Fulmer on CBS Sports, says the coach is indeed interested in the opening.
“I know he’s interested, and he’s an aggressive, relentless recruiter,” Lemming said. “He would bring in a real good staff, and he’s a relentless worker.”
There’s been no indication from the school that Fulmer is under consideration for the Irish job. Then again, there’s been no indication that he isn’t, so it’s safe to say we can officially toss the Fulmer log onto the rumor mill fire.
