Is Gene Smith on the Fence?

I think he is settled on staying at Ohio State, Notre Dame is a notoriously difficult school to work for. He has already proved himself worthy at Ohio State so I think he will stay until he feels he has done all he can with the position.

Writer’s Q&A: Is Gene Smith still considering the AD job at Notre Dame or is he settled on staying at Ohio State as he has stated?

Bill Smith: Having a son-in-law that is a ND grad, I can verify that no AD, coach, or President will ever satisfy the ND fans. They feel that God had ordained that they be handed the national championship in every sport every year. Smith will not enjoy that environment.

Pete Quint: It sounds like he's settled in at OSU but the draw of one's Alma matter is a difficult one to ignore. I hope that Ohio State does everything they can to keep him in Columbus.

Eric Geier: I think he is settled on staying at Ohio State, Notre Dame is a notoriously difficult school to work for. He has already proved himself worthy at Ohio State so I think he will stay until he feels he has done all he can with the position.

Ryan Leonardo: Gene Smith is staying at Ohio State.  Whether Notre Dame really needs a new AD is another question.  They are looking in all the wrong places to diagnose their problem.  They don't have the talent yet, and it will take a couple of seasons regardless of management.

Steve Patterson: How often does an AD get the chance to return to his Alma matter? Ohio State takes care of their people and it’s a great place with a lot to offer anyone. I think he does stay.
