Former Heisman finalist latest to emerge as Notre Dame OC candidate

A new boy has shown up on the list of potential next offensive coordinators at Notre Dame.  

Matt Freeman of Irish Sports Daily had the news that there had been discussions between Notre Dame,

 and Kansas State offensive coordinator Collin Klein and now we have much greater detail.

According to multiple reports, there is a mutual interest between Notre Dame and Klein.  

As always, Football Scoop was on the story Thursday night as was Kellis Robinett of the Wichita Eagle.  

According to the Football Scoop report, Klein spent much of the last couple days in South Bend:

Klein is remembered for his fantastic senior season as Kansas State’s quarterback in 2012.  

That year he guided the Wildcats to an 11-1 regular season record and at one point a No. 1 ranking in the BCS standings.

  He was a Heisman finalist that year as well, finishing third behind Johnny Manziel and Manti Te’o (who should have won it).
