Bryant Young is Barry White trapped in a defensive lineman’s body. (He actually says, “Get in where you fit in.” Too $hort!!!! Must be his Bay area influence).

Bring It In

There is a ton of coaching news today for the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. First, Tony Alford has been named the running backs coach (a position previously held by Mike Haywood). This was a name that never surfaced during the search, but that may be because the concentration has been on the offensive coordinator job. Either way, Alford looks like a solid hire and someone that can work to develop the overwhelming, yet perhaps underachieving talent, that is present on the Notre Dame depth chart.

Also, two former players are coming home to coach as grad assistants. Bryant Young is taking the defensive G.A. position and Tim Grunhardt is sliding into the offensive G.A. position. Bryant Young was a beast at Notre Dame and a future Hall of Famer in the NFL (A great in depth piece on Young from Both of these guys will be counted on to help improve both our defensive and offensive lines.

So welcome to Notre Dame Tony, and welcome back home, Bryant and Tim. Coach Weis is piecing together a very nice staff that should help this team get over the next step.
