UConn’s Edsall not talking about Notre Dame job

Connecticut coach Randy Edsall isn’t saying whether he’s talked

to Notre Dame about replacing Charlie Weis.

Edsall and South Carolina’s Steve Spurrier met with reporters

Thursday at a news conference for the Papajohns.com Bowl in

Birmingham, Ala.

Asked whether he’d interviewed for the coaching job at Notre

Dame as some media reports indicate, Edsall said he won’t comment

on rumors or speculation about any other job.

Spurrier wasn’t as hesitant, though. He called Edsall a

“quality guy” who would do a good job if hired by the Irish.

South Carolina and Connecticut play in the Papajohns.com Bowl at

Legion Field on Jan. 2. Edsall laughed and blushed when Spurrier

said the Connecticut coach may be at Notre Dame by then.
