Football Coach Kevin Rogers To Stay With Irish

Nov. 29, 2000

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Notre Dame offensive coordinator and quarterback coach Kevin Rogers has withdrawn his name from consideration for the vacant head football coaching position at Rutgers University.

Said Rogers, who met with Rutgers athletic director Bob Mulcahy following Notre Dame's Nov. 18 win at Rutgers, "I called Bob today and took my name out of the running. I'm happy at Notre Dame. I think we've got something great going and I'm really looking forward to the future."

The 2000 season marked Rogers second with the Irish. In '99 his offense set single-season records for passing yards and pass completions. In 2000, the Irish ranked 14th nationally in rushing (213.5 yards per game) and 17th in passing efficiency.

Freshman quarterback Matt LoVecchio shattered the Notre Dame season mark for interception avoidance (one interception in 125 attempts, to go with 11 touchdown passes) and would have ranked seventh in passing efficiency individually had he played in enough games.
