Indianapolis - One of the key players in bringing the Super Bowl to Indianapolis appears to be headed to South Bend.

Sources told Eyewitness Sports reporter Rich Nye Monday that attorney Jack Swarbrick is expected to be named as Notre Dame's next athletic director Wednesday.

Swarbrick has helped bring major sporting events to Indianapolis for more than 20 years through his work with the Indiana Sports Corporation. He is a partner in the law firm of Baker & Daniels and graduated from Notre Dame in 1976. He had no comment when reached by phone Monday.

Swarbrick helped bring the NCAA to Indianapolis and was a finalist for the job of NCAA president when Myles Brand was hired in 2002.

Notre Dame officials also would not comment on the report.
