Stoops to Notre Dame fell through?

As we all know now Charlie Weis has been fired by Notre Dame.

There has been a lot of talk about Bob Stoops being a candidate, so much so that he has been asked about the Notre Dame opening several times in recent days. In any event, Notre Dame boards everywhere are pretty much lit up now with discussions that Stoops and Notre Dame reached a rough agreement for him to be the next coach in South Bend, but that ultimately the deal fell through when Notre Dame would not agree to meet Stoops' financial demands.

Perhaps that is all smoke, mind you, but I do find it interesting. Stoops is already one of the highest paid coaches in the country -- around 4 million per year -- and it really does just make you wonder how financially limited Notre Dame may be in this economy while having to pay Weis an obscene buyout. I'll say this... if they are, you can forget any chance of them getting a guy like Stoops, Meyer, Saban, etc. No top coach is going leave an elite job to take a pay cut to rebuild somewhere else.
