NEW YORK -- Notre Dame defensive coordinator Bob Diaco, Ball State coach Pete Lembo and New Orleans Saints offensive line coach Aaron Kromer are finalists for the Boston College job, sources said Tuesday.
Diaco, who won the Frank Broyles Award as the nation's top assistant coach, has been at Notre Dame for three seasons. Under Diaco, No. 1-ranked Notre Dame (12-0) ranks first nationally in scoring defense, fourth nationally in rush defense and sixth in total defense.
Lembo is 23-12 in three seasons at Ball State. This year he led the Cardinals (9-3) to a berth in the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl vs. UCF (Dec. 21, 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN). Lembo previously was the head coach at Lehigh and Elon.
