Irish make it official: Washington new DL coach

DYLAN SINN | The Journal Gazette

Notre Dame officially announced the hiring of former Ohio State and Michigan linebackers coach and Boston College defensive tackle Al Washington to coach the Irish defensive line, a move that had been previously reported to be in the works.

“I have seen firsthand how talented Al Washington is as a coach,” said Irish head coach Marcus Freeman, who coached with Washington at Cincinnati in 2017. “He is a great teacher and developer of his players on the field, but is just as impressive in how he goes about building great men off the field. On top of that, he is a passionate recruiter whose work in that area is going to help us compete for a national title.”
