Hours after an embarrassing 38-35 home loss to Duke, Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly fired defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder following a 1-3 start.
The school tweeted a new release saying VanGorder is being replaced by defensive analyst Greg Hudson. Hudson previously served as defensive coordinator at Purdue, East Carolina and Minnesota, as well as assistant head coach and linebackers coach at Florida State.
The Irish's defense is giving up 33.5 points a game through four games, which is on pace to be the most points in school history. The school record for points surrendered per game was 28.9, set in 1956 when the Irish finished 2-8.
