Breaking News aka Strong Rumor Regarding Anthony Solomon
There is a strong rumor going around message boards regarding former Notre Dame men's basketball assistant, Anthony Solomon. Solomon was on board Mike Brey's original staff when Brey first came to Notre Dame. He coached the Irish from 2000-2003. He left to take the head coaching position at St. Bonaventure. Solomon was not too successful with the Bonnies and eventually became the assistant coach at the University of Dayton - a position he held last season.
The rumor is that Solomon will return as Brey's assistant. If true, that would be huge news. The Irish were getting a recruiting boost from departed coach Gene Cross. Cross, recently took the head coaching position at Toledo. Solomon was an excellent recruiter for the Irish during his first term. His return would allow Notre Dame's recruiting fortunes to, perhaps, take an upturn.
Stay tuned for a confirmation of this exciting rumor.
