Pod of Gold: Miami (Ohio) head coach Chuck Martin on his experience as Notre Dame's offensive coordinator
It wasn’t going to take much to overshadow Notre Dame’s upcoming Camping World Bowl matchup against Iowa State. But the news this week that the Irish and offensive coordinator Chip Long have parted ways rightfully took all the attention away from the bowl game.
This week on the podcast, Tyler James and Eric Hansen invited on someone who knows a little bit about being the offensive coordinator at Notre Dame under Brian Kelly. And that's Chuck Martin, who coached for the Irish from 2010-13 and is the current head coach of the MAC Champion Miami (Ohio) RedHawks.
On the podcast, Martin discussed his time as the Irish offensive coordinator, the relationship head coach Brian Kelly has with his offensive coordinator, the challenges an inexperienced offensive coordinator faces, Tommy Rees' coaching career, Martin's rebuilding of the Miami (Ohio) program into MAC Champions and more (1:46).
Then ND Insider recruiting reporter Carter Karels joined the podcast for recruiting predictions with Tyler James and Eric Hansen in the Place Your Bets segment (27:52). Tyler and Eric end the show by answering questions from Twitter (46:11).
