Bob Elliott, a 33-year coaching veteran that has developed All-Americans and NFL Draft picks throughout his career, was named safeties coach at the University of Notre Dame Saturday.
“My family and I are excited to be part of this great university,” Elliott said. “I grew up in the Midwest and have spent much my life in this region and always wondered what it would be like to coach at Notre Dame. This was an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up and am happy to be associated with this great place.”
Elliott has spent 29 of his 33 seasons coaching defense, primarily as a defensive backs coach or defensive coordinator. He served as defensive coordinator for a combined 11 seasons at San Diego State, Kansas State, Iowa and Ball State.
