ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame has named Joe Rudolph as the new Joe Moore Offensive Line Coach for Notre Dame Football.

Rudolph joins the Irish after serving most recently as the offensive line coach and run game coordinator at Virginia Tech.

"We are excited to add offensive line coach Joe Rudolph to our staff," said Dick Corbett Head Football Coach Marcus Freeman.

We look forward to Joe having a similar impact in our program."

Under Rudolph, the Badgers compiled 18,399 rushing yards, ranking seventh among Power 5 Conference teams at the time.

Prior to his time at Wisconsin, Rudolph worked as offensive coordinator and tight ends coach at the University of Pittsburgh from 2012 to 2014, where he developed the Panther attack to 31.8 points-per-game and 435.4 yards-per-game averages in 2014.

Before his coaching career, Rudolph played on the offensive line with the Philadelphia Eagles in 1995 and the San Francisco 49ers in 1997.

He was on the offensive line as a student at Wisconsin.
