Lou Holtz was a Skins coaching candidate?

"Listen, I talked to Dan Snyder about that job once before," Lou Holtz told Mike Wise this week, when Wise jokingly asked him whether he'd agree to coach the Redskins next season. "It was never offered to me. We were involved in a bowl game, said we could not talk until after the bowl game. By that time they had made another decision. That was several years ago when I was at South Carolina, but it was never offered to me."

Re: Lou Holtz was a Skins coaching candidate?

Holtz was probably The Danny's Plan B if Gibbs hadn't agreed to return. When you recall that Snyder considered Pepper Rogers after abrubptly firing Norv mid-season in 2000, can anything this regime does still surprise you? (He asked rhetorically)

Ha-ha. Didn't Holtz coach the Jets at one time? He's a good man. Love to hear him talk.

......If we have to go with a big name to sell tickets and get me excited, just to later let me down I think Lou Holtz is the man. His "pep talks" always fire me up for some reason. Plus Pitt beat WVU this weekend and that's who he did his pep talk on this week, i bet Pitt was listening
Yes i was serious back then

Re: Lou Holtz was a Skins coaching candidate?

The better nugget from that coaching search? "Spurrier told the Redskins he was not prepared for the daily grind an NFL coaching job demands," Mark Maske reported. They should have believed him.)

thats the best part of the article right there

That quote confused me. It didn't really sound clear that Spurrier told the skins that BEFORE they hired him. Why on earth would Spurrier tell them that during a job interview. Makes no sense. Seems more like something Spurrier would have said during the exit interview.

haven't found the original interview but i stumbled upon this from oct 23 2003 when spurrier was interveiwed by maske

[I]On whether he will go back to college coaching after this season:
I don't see that happening. My old athletic director at Duke called me the other day trying to get some names. He was just halfway kidding and he said, 'Do you want to come back and coach at Duke?' I said, 'I've already done that. I've already done my time in college and at Duke.' I said, 'Nah, this is the challenge that intrigues me the most, no question about it.' This is the challenge that I have not succeeded in yet, and I'm going to try my best to succeed at this level.

It wasn't during a job interview that he said that. The Redskins (and many other teams went after him) and he said no, I'm not ready. A year and a few million dollars later, he sang a different tune

Re: Lou Holtz was a Skins coaching candidate?

Holtz did coach the Jets. As I recall, he lasted less than one year. The results were not pretty.

Legend has it that he wrote a "fight song" for the Jets and tried to get the team to sing it. The players didn't like that a whole lot...

Yes, Lou Holtz and Ceratto have ND ties. I read one of Lou's books that stated he wanted to coach the Skins.
