Solomon Returns to Replace Cross
Reports have Anthony Solomon returning to South Bend for his second stint as an Irish assistant. Solomon coached the Irish from 2000-2003. When he left for a head coaching job at St. Bonaventure, the Irish seemed to lose a toughness that they did not regain until Gene Cross' arrival for the 06-07 campaign. Indeed, many would argue that Solomon is a step up from Cross on the bench. So that's very exciting news. Hopefully Anthony will fit right back in with the team and give us another great two or three years before delving back into the head coaching world.
