does this mean that Polian could replace BK when he steps down? not sure I love the move.

 

Well. Not exactly. If Kelly were to get sick/ fired the associate head coach could be interim. At which point, if Kelly could no longer continue Swarbick or whoever the AD would then conduct a national search.

 

So Polian like Kent Baer could coach a bowl game or something

 

But Fanatics right, its about money AND Elston wants to coach more then being Kelly's 2nd in command.

 

This is Kelly saying "Mike I know your not defensive coordinator and you want to be, here's a nice raise and a return to a Coordinator Position"

 

Brian Polian: "Brian, I know you were the Head Coach at Nevada and know how to run a program, here's your step toward your next head coaching try (not at ND)"

Very weird as it seems like Elston is stepping backwards.

Maybe just new title/duties allows them to give him more money.

 

 

Elston has added those titles/duties to his old title/responsibilities

You're saying that BOTH Polian and Elston are Associate Head Coach? Elston had been Associate Head Coach the last 3 years, and that title is being removed from him. Instead, he's adding recruiting coordinator and Defensive Run Game Coordinator. Not a demotion, per se, but definitely changing of titles.

Your correct....I guess the Notre Dame announcement assumed everyone knew Elston was the Associate Head Coach last year.

“.....Mike Elston will continue to serve as Bob and Leslie Mohr Family Defensive Line Coach and has added the titles of recruiting coordinator and run game coordinator for the defense.”

Doesn't say he will still ALSO be Associate Head Coach, though, which all the news reports have said he won't be. Yes, still D-Line coach. No one questioned that.
