Things got wild there for a minute regarding the Notre Dame Football coaching staff for the 2023 season. Ever since Tommy Rees decided to go to Tuscaloosa to become the offensive coordinator for the Alabama Crimson Tide, Notre Dame has been in the one form or another in full search mode.
The most recent departure was special teams coordinator Brian Mason, who started for the NFL and the Indianapolis Colts. Mason’s name wasn’t the only one to keep popping up in conversations for the NFL. Defensive coordinator Al Golden, wide receivers coach Chansi Stuckey, running backs coach Deland McCullough and safety coach Chris O’Leary were also trusted assistants by the pros.
Shortly after learning of Mason’s new gig, we found out that Marcus Freeman plans to replace Mason with Ole Miss Rebels’ Marty Biagi.
Then the rumors started leaking out about the other assistants we named above and they’re all staying at Notre Dame for 2023. The Irish coaching staff will be as follows:
- HC—Marcus Freeman
- OC/TE – Straight Parker
- RB — Deland McCullough
- QB — Gino Guidugli
- WR — Chansi Stuckey
- OL—Joe Rudolph
- DC/LB—Al Golden
- DL—Al Washington
- CB—Mike Mickens
- S—Chris O’Leary
- STC — Marty Biagi
As for the GAs and analysts…there’s always a lot of movement. Most notably, Chris Watt also goes to Indianapolis to become an orienteering coach.
