The former Ohio State linebacker knows the Midwest very well which shows in the Irish’s recruiting. With turmoil in East Lansing, the Michigan State Spartans are looking for their next head coach and Rico Beard of Rivals suggests that Freeman is the best candidate.
As much as Beard would love for the current Irish boss to head North and take over the Spartan program, it’s a pipe dream. Notre Dame isn’t a stepping point for another job, it’s a destination.

After rebuilding the Notre Dame program these last two years, it makes no sense to go to Michigan State and do the same sans having the Irish clout. It’s not surprising that Freeman would be linked to other jobs, he’s a solid coach, but this isn’t a match.
