championship winning or near championship winning (e.g., I personally don't consider 2012 to be 'near championship' for ND) or someone who's been highly competitive in one of the top conferences or the NFL then, no. Swarbrick might be ready to achieve that but I wouldn't think that it's likely. It's more likely that the only way we'll get a viable candidate is if Swarbrick finds someone who will grow into the job - he'll have to get lucky. And, yes, I'm fully, painfully aware that this is the normal way championship coaches are discovered but Notre Dame is not a normal school. It's not a very good incubator.
