It has been known for a couple of days now that Marcus Freeman was going to be Notre Dame’s next head coach but on Friday morning the announcement was officially made by the University. In the press release the University of Notre Dame sent out, Freeman made his first comments about being named the 30th head coach in program history.

“It is an honor to be named the head coach of Notre Dame Football,” said Freeman. “I am eternally grateful to both Father John Jenkins and Jack Swarbrick for giving me the opportunity to lead the exceptional men who make this program what it is. Notre Dame is a very special place and I look forward to pursuing a national championship with the most outstanding student-athletes, coaches and staff in college football.” – Marcus Freeman

Previous to Notre Dame, Freeman served as the defensive coordinator at Cincinnati and worked at Purdue and Kent State before that. He was also a graduate assistant at Ohio State where he had previously played for the Buckeyes from 2005-2009.
