Following the firing of Charlie Weis as Notre Dame's head coach, the oddsmakers at Sportsbook.com were quick to post odds on who will coach Notre Dame football next.

The favorite:  That would be Brian Kelly at 2-1 odds.

Interestingly enough, at press time, Kelly might be out of the running as reports were surfacing that he had come to terms with the University of Cincinnati, finalizing the terms of a multi-year contract.

The next best bet might be Jim Harbaugh, who would pay out $5 for every $2 wagered.

"With Charlie Weis firing and Notre Dame's rabid fans, this story is/will be in the news a ton," said Dave Stanley, spokesperson for Sportsbook.com.
