NOW: New ND football assistant coaches


Marcus Freeman’s offseason search to fill all the open positions is now complete.

And now that every position is filled, Freeman’s first coaching staff is now ready to get started heading into spring ball.

“Look I’m an efficient worker,” defensive coordinator Al Golden said. “I don’t guard my desk at night in terms of staying late just to say I stayed late. That’s part of being a leader, right? Delegate, work together, hold each other accountable and get the work done.”

New Notre Dame defensive coordinator Al Golden is hitting the ground running.

Golden spent the past six years in the NFL and coached as an assistant for the Cincinnati Bengals in the super bowl just three days ago.

Another addition to Marcus Freeman’s coaching staff is cornerbacks coach Mike Mickens who played and coached for Cincinnati.

Mickens says he chose to come to Notre Dame because of the tight-knit locker room and mentions how the players want to be coached on and off the field. 

“They want to be coached, they want to be the best,” cornerbacks coach Mike Mickens said. “And they want to do that on a daily basis. When you get guys that want to go compete in the classroom and then go compete in our classroom, come on the field and compete. Great things happen.”

The next time we’ll get to see the Irish in action on April 23 at the annual Blue and Gold game.
