PODCAST: Notre Dame Hires Defensive Coordinator Marcus Freeman

The Irish Breakdown staff breaks down the Notre Dame hire of Marcus Freeman at defensive coordinator
Publish date:

Notre Dame made a big-time splash tonight, hiring former Cincinnati defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman to run the Fighting Irish defense. Reports surfaced this afternoon that Freeman was headed to LSU, but Notre Dame did what it had to do and came away with a must-get hire.

In the latest Irish Breakdown podcast, football analyst Vince DeDario and publisher Bryan Driskell break down what this means for Notre Dame.

The episode begins with the Irish Breakdown crew giving some backstory about this hire, and the fact that so many sources were originally slating Freeman to head to LSU. The show then turns into a breakdown of why Freeman was such a great hire by Kelly and Notre Dame.

In the podcast we referenced a chart that showed the improvement that Freeman made when he took over the Cincinnati program. You can see that chart here:
