Here’s what Notre Dame’s new running backs coach Tony Alford had to say about joining the Irish staff.
“Notre Dame is the epitome of college football,” Alford said. “To join a place with the tradition and history of Notre Dame is very exciting and I’m grateful to Coach Weis for extending me this tremendous opportunity.
“I have several people in my life that I greatly respect and use as sounding boards for important life decisions such as changing jobs. When this position opened, I counseled with those individuals and they were as enthusiastic about this opportunity as I am. I am very flattered that Coach Weis considered me for this post and my family and I are thrilled to join the Notre Dame family.”
Pretty much just some coachspeak for now, but I’ll be very interested to hear his first press conference to see what he says about the talent he now has to work with.
