Notre Dame Football introduces Mike Denbrock as the next offensive coordinator

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The Irish are familiar with Denbrock, as he starts his third stint with Notre Dame after leaving Brian Kelly and LSU.

For the third season in a row Notre Dame football has a new offensive coordinator.

In December, Notre Dame announced Mike Denbrock will be the new OC after Gerad Parker left the Irish to become the head coach at troy university.

A well-respected coach in college football, Denbrock coached the Irish offensive line and tight ends from 2002-2004.

He served his second stint from 2010-2016 and this time, he's leaving Brian Kelly and LSU to rejoin the Irish.

"Number one, it was a really hard decision to leave LSU, our family was happy there. Great program, a lot of respect for Coach Kelly, obviously, we've worked together on and off, over 30 plus years, or, or however long I've been doing this. So that was difficult. I really wasn't really looking for a new opportunity, but when Notre Dame called and we had a couple conversations, this is a place that I've always felt my heart was, it's where I've always wanted to be," Denbrock said.
