BREAKING | John McNulty Leaving Notre Dame To Be BC's OC

January 31, 2022

A source close to the situation confirms to Irish Sports Daily that John McNulty will be leaving Notre Dame to become Boston College’s offensive coordinator.

McNulty coached tight ends for the Irish the past two seasons and truly loved his time and the people he was with in South Bend, but the opportunity to once again be a Power Five offensive coordinator was too great to pass up.

McNulty did two stints as offensive coordinator at Rutgers between an 8-year stint coaching receivers, quarterbacks and tight ends in the NFL.

A Pennsylvania native and a Penn State alum, the opportunity to return to the East Coast was also appealing to McNulty.

He got his start in coaching as a graduate assistant at Michigan before spending three years coaching receivers at UConn. He then made the jump to the NFL with the Jaguars and the Cowboys before returning to college game at Rutgers.

While at Notre Dame, McNulty helped continue the Irish tight end tradition, helping groom Michael Mayer into an All-American talent from the start.

His departure means that Notre Dame offensive coordinator Tommy Rees will be working with an entirely new staff.

Harry Hiestand and Chansi Stuckey have already been hired to coach offensive line and receivers, replacing Jeff Quinn and Del Alexander, respectively. Now, the Irish need a new tight ends coach as well as a new running backs coach to replace Lance Taylor, who took the offensive coordinator job at Louisville earlier this month.
