Paraphrasing Josh Pate earlier: "If I'm hiring a premier OC, I'm going after someone the top guys want. Brian Kelly wanted Rees to go with him to LSU, which Rees respectfully decline. Now the GOAT is talking to him - maybe they know something I don't."
I think Its a good hire. Keep in mind that they will run the Alabama offense, just with a little Coach Rees flare. I also believe Nick was impressed with how Notre Dame used the TEs, as Nick has made an effort the last 4-5 years to try and develop that position as an offensive weapon. It just hasn’t worked out.
CTR is young, can relate to players and should be a recruiting force With the Alabama name behind him . Plus , it’s a little bit of a middle finger to Baton Rouge’s Dirty Dancer!
Agreed he is not BOB. I will trust CNS in this process, he has earned that. Josh Pate (I know many are not fans) had a good point - Kelly wanted him at LSU and CNS went after him. Those two coaches know a heckuva lot more than I do. Again we will see what happens, but he cannot be worse than the last guy.
When I watched Notre Dame, I always thought their offenses overachieved with the talent they had, but that's a good sign that the play calling and scheme was strong. This could be a bust, but I have good reason to be optimistic. Welcome aboard coach Rees!
