Bud Foster and two men with ties to Ohio State are on the University of Virginia's short list of possible replacements for retiring football coach George Welsh.
University of Pittsburgh coach Walt Harris, who once was an assistant at Ohio State and current Ohio State defensive coordinator John Tenuta - a former three year letterman at UVa - are both said to be on athletic director Terry Holland's wish list this Christmas season.
Bud Foster has also met with Holland.
It would be tough for Foster to leave his mentor, Frank Beamer, but it could happen.
