Former Notre Dame assistant reunites with Tommy Rees at Alabama

If I had a dollar for every time I heard the saying “it’s not what you know but who you know” then I’d have enough extra cash to pay off maybe 10% of my remaining student loans. That saying played out again this week at the University of Alabama.

As Notre Dame fans know, Tommy Rees took the offensive coordinator position with the Crimson Tide a few weeks ago. He will have former Notre Dame tight ends coach john McNulty join him as an offensive analyst. McNulty spent last year as the offensive coordinator at Boston College. He coached at Notre Dame the two years previous to that.

In his career, McNulty has coached seven All-Americans or freshman All-Americans.
