I agree that Taylor wants to move up. However, if ND paid him more, he could wait till it's an opportunity he can't pass up instead of just the next available opportunity.

OC at a P5 school is a good step up and I believe he has passed up other opportunities in the past. ND fans are somewhat lucky because most programs have way more turnover than ND does, esp at the top. Exception being Clemson's cordinators.

Highly doubtful it was about more money since he turned down Kelly at LSU and stayed at ND until this promotion came along.

I would love Al Washington to join the staff. I would consider that a homerun hire.

Your wish came true!Breaking news: Al Washington has been hired as ND's next DL coach and yes it is a home run hire!

Going to Ohio State message boards they seem to like this hire.  They think they'll run for at least 250 yards because of Washington's hire.  They weren't sold on him and his development.  Couple that with that their defense has been shit, Washington was basically let go, and all the drama with Pope and their locker room.  Call me concerned.....

Agree with concerned. We didn’t hire home away from OSU, he was let go.  That’s a red flag but we’ll see how it goes.

I’m just really interested in who he brings in. Al can recruit! 
In terms of the D at OSU isn’t that more of the DC and they let him go? Then didn’t they bring in Todd Bowles who wants his own staff?

They said the same thing(ohio state board).  BUT, who has Al recruited?  Names?

This is his 2022 recruiting profile:

Al Washington can recruit and he has coached a couple studs at both OSU and Michigan (LBs coach).

Lance Taylor was a solid coach, but his recruiting was a little lacking according to some insiders/experts.

I think it is clear Freeman prioritizes recruiting in his coaches. Hopefully it pays off.

Ha, Styles....anyways, there board seems to think otherwise.  That he takes 5 star talent and makes it 3 star.  I just hope they are wrong.

You'll often get guys with reputations as either great coaches or great recruiters. Luckily Elston has coached these guys up. Lets give   the great recruiter a shot

Most teams who lose a coach say that. Tennessee said that about Harry Heistand when he came to ND. Washington is the 6th ranked coach for recruiting on 247...

Agree Faith. Let’s see if he can get some big time studs here on the defense consistently.
