Elko Has Flipped the Script with the ND Defense

October 12, 2017

Brian Kelly hasn’t batted 1.000 with his assistant coaching hires over the years, but he needed to make sure he got them right last December and January when it was clear he had to shake up the program. Only six games into the season, it may be premature to get too excited about all of the moves he made, but bringing on former Wake Forest defensive coordinator Mike Elko has to be considered a homerun.

This Notre Dame defense is unrecognizable from the defense that was on the field a year ago.
