Ex-Irish star Maurice Stovall thinks Jon Gruden would be great fit at Notre Dame



With ex-Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden’s name circulating as a potential candidate to replace Charlie Weis at Notre Dame, WR Maurice Stovall – a former Irish standout – said Gruden would be a good fit.

Stovall, a third-round pick out of Notre Dame in 2006, played for Gruden for three seasons.

“I think his style of football and his personality would rub off on his players," Stovall said. "Maybe him being an NFL coach and having a super bowl under his belt, maybe that would attract better recruits as people were saying, better players, and maybe even a better coaching staff. If Gruden had opportunity to coach there, I’m sure he’d do a great job.”
