Notre Dame Football

Today, Notre Dame announced new offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock and new quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur.

Both coaches have worked with Brian Kelly before. Denbrock served as the offensive coordinator at Grand Valley State from 1992-1995. LaFleur worked with Kelly as an offensive assistant at Central Michigan.

New offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock said:

“If you’ve watched Coach Kelly’s offenses in the past, I think they encompass an offense that’s more in an attacking style. He likes to go fast. He likes to keep the defense on their heels. He likes to be very aggressive with what he does, and I think that’s the direction we’re certainly moving into. With the athletes that we have, we feel like we’re in a position offensively to push the tempo more and to put our playmakers in positions where they can make big plays and do the things that all of us hope our offense looks like, one that’s dynamic and can score more points and move the football consistently.”

Since Kelly came to Notre Dame, fans have questioned why the Irish have not played at a faster tempo. Hearing that Notre Dame will begin to play that way should get Notre Dame fans excited. Here is today’s press conference:
