Notre Dame Promotes Mike Denbrock To Offensive Coordinator
By Kristen Finstad
Notre Dame completed its 2014 coaching staff with the promotion of Mike Denbrock to offensive coordinator, which the team made official Thursday night.
Denbrock, who spent the last two seasons as Notre Dame's outside receivers coach/passing game coordinator, served the last month as interim coordinator after Chuck Martin took the head coaching job at Miami (Ohio) on Dec. 3. Denbrock helped lead the Irish to a 29-16 win over Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl.
The 50-year-old Denbrock is no stranger to Notre Dame and head coach Brian Kelly. Before his most recent two years, Denbrock spent two seasons as the Irish's tight ends coach. He also served as an Irish assistant from 2002-04, coaching offensive tackles and tight ends. In addition, Denbrock served as an assistant to Kelly at Grand Valley State from 1992-98.
Denbrock will address the media Friday afternoon.
