ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz is mulling a run for Congress in Florida as a Republican.

A GOP strategist said Tuesday that Holtz could decide in the next several weeks whether to run for the central Florida congressional seat currently held by Democrat Suzanne Kosmas.

The strategist requested anonymity because he is not authorized to talk about the matter.

The 72-year-old Holtz has never run for office. He has worked as an analyst at ESPN since retiring from his last coaching stint at the University of South Carolina at the end of the 2004 season.

Holtz is the only coach to guide six schools to a bowl game, and he led Notre Dame to its last national championship in 1988. He was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame last year.
