Following a third-straight 10-win season, Dick Corbett Head Football Coach Brian Kelly has announced his intention to make a pair of promotions on the offensive side of the ball. Tom Rees, current quarterbacks coach and former record-setting Irish signal-caller, will be named the John and Bobbie Arlotta offensive coordinator. Additionally, after a season as running backs coach, Lance Taylor will be elevated to the run game coordinator position.

“After an extensive national search, I’m proud to name Tom Rees our next offensive coordinator,” said Kelly. “Tom’s ability to connect with our players and staff and accepting and embracing the incredible opportunity in being the offensive coordinator at Notre Dame made him the right choice. While Tom’s leadership ability and knowledge of the game was evident, it was his humble approach to his own development and desire to continue to grow and learn that were also key factors that set him apart in a talented pool of candidates.”

Since his return to his alma mater as the Bob and Leslie Mohr Family Quarterbacks Coach, Rees has helped the Irish compile a 33-6 record and the most wins (33) in program history in a three-year span (tying 1988-1990 seasons).
