I just received this e-mail from Notre Dame football sports information director Brian Hardin, which is ironic given this morning's post dealt specifically with defensive assistants and the program's struggles to recruit blue-chip defensive linemen.
Tom Lemming's quote echoes ...
Here's the statement from Hardin: "Defensive line coach Jappy Oliver has resigned from his position at the University of Notre Dame to pursue other opportunities."
Oliver didn't fail as a coach so much as he did as a recruiter. Expect Weis to bring in a quality recruiter to replace him. Who knows? Maybe they will join the Bears in the Rod Marinelli sweepstakes (kidding).
