Maryland has yet to contact Notre Dame's Corrigan

Kevin Corrigan, who guided unseeded Notre Dame to the championship final of the NCAA Tournament on Memorial Day, said he has not been in contact with Maryland officials regarding the head coaching vacancy there.

"I'm not in any position," Corrigan said Friday. "I've got a job and I haven't talked to anybody. I'm in the same position I'm in every day."

After Dave Cottle stepped down on May 1623 after the No. 3 seed Terps were upset, 7-5, by the Fighting Irish, Corrigan's name was included in a short list of potential successors that included Cornell coach Jeff Tambroni, Bryant coach Mike Pressler and Syracuse women's lacrosse coach Gary Gait.

However, Tambroni, Pressler and Gait -- a former assistant coach for the Maryland women's lacrosse team -- have since withdrawn from consideration. It is believed that the school's search committee is reviewing a pool of candidates that includes Corrigan, Albany coach Scott Marr and Stevenson coach Paul Cantabene.

Corrigan, who just returned with his team from a 10-day stay in Japan, declined to say whether he would be interested in the Terps job. "I'm not going to speculate about anything," he said. "There's no future in geting into hypothetical conversations."

Not contacting a coach whose team's shots missed the goal 21 out of 31 times against DUKE is GOOD NEWS.

Not sure that the Terps job is very attractive. Unrealistic expectations due to having to out recruit UNC, UVa and Duke, not to mention Hopkins, Syracuse!
Therefore, it REMAINS very hard to consistently get to the Final Four

Not sure what the upside is from viewing this coach's style of play(?) He should go to Air Force and biuld that program,maybe, and if he were black then that might matter for an interview. That final game is one I'll forget for a long time.
