Notre Dame

The departure of Notre Dame offensive coordinator Tommy Rees to Alabama shocked many in the Fighting Irish community including former players like Tim Brown.

Brown took to social media Saturday and ripped Rees‘ departure to Tuscaloosa. “This is a great day for Irish football and maybe even a better day for Tommy Rees. I’ve been around a lot of offenses, but the Irish offense last year, with maybe the exception of the North Carolina game, was extremely predictable. Seeing the offense struggle told me At least two things.”

Brown also puts Rees’ success on former head coach Brian Kelly. He tweeted, “1) Tommy was very dependent on Kelly and more important, he didn’t have the ability to dissect a defense. What we saw is what I call HERO ball! You have a player(mayer) who is better than the person covering and you throw him the ball a zillion times.”

He continued, “Make him the hero. If that doesn’t work you lose. I was at a couple of games where it took everything in me not to go knock on the booth window and say give me the call sheet!!! Lol! I truly wish him well, he’s gonna need it! Let’s Go Irish!”

Some Irish fans defended Rees to Brow,n who obviously is upset that the former Irish quarterback left his alma mater for the Crimson Tide. But while Brown was ripping Rees, he obviously forget that Notre Dame made the College Football Playoff with him as their OC.
