Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly announced Tuesday that Tommy Rees will be the new Fighting Irish offensive coordinator and that running backs coach Lance Taylor has been promoted to run game coordinator.
Notre Dame quarterback Phil Jurkovec has entered the transfer portal, according to numerous media reports Tuesday. The news was first reported by Tom Loy of 247 Sports.
As soon as the final whistle sounded on that fateful, Oct. 26 night in Ann Arbor, the doubt over the 2019 Notre Dame football team crept in. The Fighting Irish had just been embarrassed, 45-14, on national television against one of their rivals, Michigan. It wasn’t just the fact they lost by 31, but how they looked doing so. The Wolverines out-classed Notre Dame in all three phases of the game, and the Irish players and coaching staff looked like they didn’t want to be there on a wet, cold night in Michigan.
Redshirt freshman Braden Lenzy was embarrassed when he failed to take a snap in front of family and friends during Notre Dame's season opener at Louisville. He vowed never to have that feeling again.
Notre Dame football head coach Brian Kelly confirmed Saturday what had already been reported by multiple media outlets — Chip Long is no longer the offensive coordinator for the Fighting Irish.
It wasn’t a matter of where Notre Dame would play its bowl game this year but against whom. With four Big 12 teams eligible to face the Fighting Irish, it was uncertain which one would be selected to face Notre Dame in the Camping World Bowl.
There were no bowl game representatives in Palo Alto Saturday for the Notre Dame-Stanford football game, per Mike Berardino of The Indianapolis Star. This all-but confirms that the Fighting Irish are headed to the Camping World Bowl on Dec. 28 in Orlando, FL.
With injuries to players like defensive ends Daelin Hayes and Julian Okwara and offensive linemen Tommy Kraemer and Robert Hainsey, most teams would’ve folded. Notre Dame hasn’t, though, and a lot of that can be credited to the depth on the Fighting Irish roster.
Notre Dame put together yet another dominant performance Saturday, defeating Boston College, 40-7, on Senior Day at Notre Dame Stadium. It’s Notre Dame’s fourth straight win and third straight by more than 30 points.
There may not have been one play that illustrated Ian Book had his mojo back more than the throw he made to Lawrence Keys in the third quarter Saturday against Navy.
There weren’t many negatives in Saturday’s 52-20 victory for Notre Dame over Navy, but a recent trend did continue against the Midshipmen: lack of production from the running back position.
Three weeks ago, people were asking for Brian Kelly to be fired and Ian Book to be benched. Three wins and two dominating performances later, those people have been silenced.
