The future of Army-Notre Dame football

New Army athletic director Boo Corrigan worked five years in Notre Dame’s athletic department.

So Corrigan’s ties may help revive an Army-Notre Dame game or series, right?

Army and Notre Dame met for the 50th time last November at Yankee Stadium. No games are scheduled in the future.

“When you look at the histories of the schools, the academic parallels , and who we are as an institution and who they are as an institution, it sure seems to make some sense,” Corrigan said in an interview last week. “Now whether, we can fit that into the schedule, I’m not positive. From a like-minded institution, it’s a heck of a game.

“I think it’s a great game. When you talk to people here as well as Notre Dame (about last year at Yankee Stadium), obviously we would have liked to have won the game, they use the word, ‘magic.” That it was a magical moment before that game. That’s something you are not going to get everywhere.”

Former Army athletic director Kevin Anderson and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick butted heads in the past. A source said Norte Dame wanted the perks tilted in its favor in a future series. Corrigan worked under former Notre Dame athletic director Kevin White at Duke before taking the Army position.

“I know Jack a little bit,” Corrigan said. “Everyone I worked with there is pretty much still there  and they give Jack rave reviews as well as some television friends we share in common. I certainly think I could pick up the phone and call Jack if I needed to.”
