Former USC coach Lou Holtz is considering running for Congress in Central Florida.
Sources told The Orlando Sentinel that Holtz met with top Republicans in Washington, D.C., last week and was interested in challenging U.S. Rep. Suzanne Kosmas, D-New Smyrna Beach.
Holtz led Notre Dame to its last national championship in 1988 and also coached William & Mary, North Carolina State, Arkansas, Minnesota and South Carolina during his 33-season career.
He ranks eighth all-time in number of victories by Football Bowl Subdivision coaches, 11 ahead of Ohio State’s Woody Hayes.
Holtz has been an ESPN college-football analyst since 2005.
