April 17, 2023

Notre Dame made a key hire official on Monday as Butler Benton has been named Assistant AD for Player Personnel for the Irish program. 

247 sports was the first to report the news. 

Benton comes from Arkansas after a two-year run as General Manager for the Razorbacks program. Prior to his stop with Sam Pittman, Benton spent the 2020 campaign at Georgia Southern as the Director of Player Personnel. 

Notre Dame is not a new place for Benton as he spent one year as Notre Dame’s assistant Director of Player Development in 2013 before moving to the University of New Orleans to be Director of Student-Athlete Enrichment. Following his stop in New Orleans, Benton worked as the Director of Recruiting/ Player Personnel Coordinator at Michigan State for the next four years. 

The Detroit native was a four-year letterman at Cincinnati where he played for Brian Kelly and Mark Dantonio. Benton rushed for 1,736 yards and 11 touchdowns during his career with Bearcats, including 499 yards and two touchdowns in his final season.
