Kelly's staff starts to take form

Brian Kelly's first coaching staff at Notre Dame is officially taking shape.

The Irish coach announced three coaches to his staff Tuesday.

Mike Denbrock, a former Indiana State associated head coach, will coach linebackers; Mike Elston, a former Cincinnati assistant head coach, will be in charge of the defensive line; and Chuck Martin, who was Grand Valley State's head coach, will oversee defensive backs.

"These guys have worked with me in the past, all three guys understand the importance of player development and we share the same philosophies for making our team better," Kelly said in a statement. "They each will be valuable recruiters for us as we put together a staff that will be able to cover the country and attract some of the best talent available."

The three coaches join running backs coach Tony Alford, the lone holdover from Charlie Weis' staff.

The university statement said the remainder of the staff will be announced at a later date.
