BREAKING: Notre Dame RB Coach leaving for Ohio State

on

According to multiple media reports, Notre Dame Running Back coach and Recruiting Coordinator Tony Alford has left to be the Running Back coach at The Ohio State University.  This is a huge loss for Irish Football not only in the running game which has consistently been one of the top rushing attacks in the country, but a loss in recruiting.  Alford has ties in Florida and Texas which has proved to be huge in recruiting over the past few years.

Where does Brian Kelly go from here?  It is absolutely crucial that he hires someone that runs the recruiting similar to that of Alford.  Being able to recruit in Texas, Florida, and Georgia was the bread and butter for the Irish over the past few years bringing in the likes of Stephon Tuitt and Greg Bryant.

Possible names to keep an eye on:
Chad Scott – Running Back Coach/Running Game Coordinator at University of Kentucky
Autry Densen – Running Back Coach at University of South Florida
