Notre Dame Fighting Irish news: Rees as good as gone, women’s basketball W

With offensive Notre Dame football offensive coordinator Tommy Rees meeting with Nick Saban yesterday, I’d assume coach Rees is as good as gone. While nothing is official, it seems unlikely he’d take the visit after completing a zoom interview Wednesday to tell coach Saban “no.”

With more details coming to light, it would be surprising to turn down coach Saban’s offer to make Tommy one of the highest-paid coordinators in the league. According to some of the rumors floating around, he could be the highest paid in college football. Again, nothing has been made official, but I don’t see how he doesn’t accept the position.

As much as I love coach Rees, I’m genuinely excited to see what Notre Dame does moving forward, should they need to find a replacement. Tommy is relatively far from a proven commodity. If we’re being honest, his time in Tuscaloosa could flame out quickly. In his one year as the lone signal-caller, coach Rees had an underwhelming season. We all know the talent at quarterback, and wide receiver wasn’t top-tier. Still, Drew Pyne had an underrated season, statistically.

If I had to guess whether Tommy Rees stays or goes, I would guess that he leaves the Notre Dame football program for Alabama

The Notre Dame women’s basketball team secured a victory over Boston College by a score of 72-59, with Sonia Citron and Olivia Miles leading the charge. Citron had 23 points on 10 of 18 from the floor and 3 of 6 from deep. Miles had a massive game as she was 2 rebounds shy of a triple-double with 22 points, 10 assists, and 8 rebounds. Even after losing Mabrey, the Irish are on their way to another fantastic season.

We’ll have more in the coming days on coach Tommy Rees and where he ends up. Will he stay with his alma mater or leave to coach alongside one of the greatest to do it? It’ll be hard to blame him if he ends up at Alabama but fans obviously wouldn’t be thrilled.
