Maryland vacancy furthest thing from Notre Dame coach's mind

After guiding unseeded Notre Dame to its first national title contest and its second Final Four appearance in 10 years, Kevin Corrigan might just be the hottest coaching commodity in the nation.

And with vacancies at Maryland and Penn State, Corrigan might have enough ammunition to call his shot.

But Corrigan wasn’t in the mood to talk about his immediate future after the Fighting Irish’s 6-5 overtime loss to No. 5 seed Duke on Monday.

"I have no comment whatsoever," Corrigan said. "I haven’t talked to anybody, and I have no comment."

Corrigan, who just wrapped up his 22nd season at Notre Dame and his 24th year overall, has compiled a career coaching record of 216-118. The Fighting Irish have qualified for five consecutive NCAA Tournaments.

Why in the hell would he want to go to Maryland anyway?

Not sure leaving Notre Dame for the Terps job would be a good career move for him, given the unreal expectations for Terp lacrosse

Tha's because he'll be taking the UVA job.

Just because the UVA AD gave their coaches a vote of confidence does it mean you wont see a change or changes down there. Very tough situation personally and professionally for the coaches---corrigan is a Uva grad and has done a great job at ND---wouldnt be surprised to see a change quietly during the summer----school now has a new president too

Oh my, Stewie must have also heard what is brewing down in Charlottesville!

Plus, the UM Lax Alum are putting the full court press on for Gary Gait to get the job!

Debbie blew this one big time. Blue Collar Cottle obviously not her proverbial cup of tea, and the idea the UM job one to be nationally coveted a myth-- heck, it is at best the fourth school in the ACC alone. Dave Slafkosky is the glue keeping it all together the past quarter century at College Park. The squad wanted GG ten years ago when The Big Man, Dick Edell, had to step down for medical reasons, so I am sure the UM Lax Alumni will be pushing hard again. If I was on the search committee I would have Canabene on my recommended hire list and and not look back-- a player's play at Loyola for Cottle, assisted under Cottle, did time at Hopkins, knows the local recruiting scene. Terps could do worse, and with Debbie in charge, probably will :-)

I agree with Gary and Randy. Notre Dame just beat Maryland so in a sense why would Corrigan want to coach a team he just beat? This is like former Redskins Coach Joe Gibbs going to coach his arch enemy in the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys.

It would be great (and fun) if Cottle signed with my alma meter - Towson. I would love to see the Tigers beat the Terps any day.

Ron Caputo, Duke's offensive coordinator, would be a good fit for Maryland.
