Notre Dame football coaching staff now in place

Two weeks away from National Signing Day, Brian Kelly finally has a full staff in place for the first time since early December when Charley Molnar was announced as the new head coach at UMass.

Iowa State secondary coach Bobby Elliott, who coached both Irish defensive coordinator Bob Diaco and defensive backs coach Kerry Cooks at Iowa, will join the Irish staff as a defensive assistant.

Former Bears offensive line coach Harry Hiestand, who spent the last two seasons at Tennessee, will take over the O-Line for the Irish.

Neither move has officially been announced by Notre Dame.

Former Irish intern Scott Booker will take over as a full-time offensive assistant.

The moves fill out Kelly's coaching staff after Molnar left for UMass and offensive coach Ed Warinner and running backs coach Tim Hinton both departed for Ohio State.
