Notre Dame-Fairfield will be conducting interviews with eight candidates on Thursday, athletic director Rob Bleggi confirmed today. The school, he said, will likely make a decision the following week.
Bleggi said Notre Dame whittled its finalists down from 19 applicants. Some candidates, he said, might be asked to return for a second interview before Notre Dame makes its final decision.
Finalist names aren’t known.
Back in March, Notre Dame inexplicably fired Dawon Dicks after one season and a 1-9 record.
The next coach will be the school’s fifth since Jeff Bevino left for Foran in 2006.
