SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- New Notre Dame defensive backs coach Chuck Martin also will serve as the school's recruiting coordinator, and defensive line coach Mike Elston will add duties of special teams coordinator.

Coach Brian Kelly says he selected Martin, the former Grand Valley State head coach, to coordinate recruiting because the pair have a shared philosophy. Kelly says Martin will do well because he is persistent and organized.

Elston worked with Kelly as special teams coordinator at Central Michigan and Cincinnati for the past four seasons. Kelly says he expects the Irish special teams to be well coached and aggressive.
