SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz tells an Indiana television station he doesn't plan to run for Congress.
Holtz told WNDU-TV of South Bend that he's focusing on working for ESPN, saying: ``I don't want to run for Congress.''
The 72-year-old Holtz made the comments Wednesday at a golf outing in nearby Bridgman, Mich. A GOP strategist said Tuesday that Holtz was considering running as a Republican for the central Florida congressional seat held by Democrat Rep. Suzanne Kosmas.
Holtz has never run for office. He has worked as an analyst at ESPN since retiring from his last coaching stint at South Carolina at the end of the 2004 season.
A message seeking comment was left Thursday at Holtz's office in Orlando, Fla. His secretary said he was traveling and not available for comment.
