According to Pete Sampson of, Urban Meyer's zeroed in on his target to replace former running backs coach Stan Drayton, who took a promotion with the Chicago Bears earlier this week.

Notre Dame's recruiting coordinator/running backs/wide receivers coach, Tony Alford, is apparently on top of Urban's wishlist.

It's a move that would make a lot of sense at first look. Meyer reportedly had interestin Alford before, an affection that stems to time spent together when Alford was running back at Colorado State during Urban's one year pit stop in Fort Collins.

Sampson cites Alford as Brian Kelly's best recruiter and lists Louis Nix, Aaron Lynch, and Dexter Williams as just a few of the names he's hauled to South Bend.

Recruiting, after all, is the No. 1 trait Urban looks for in an assistant.
