Notre Dame reportedly poaching Indiana assistant coach
Tom Allen will reportedly need a new running backs coach.
Notre Dame is reportedly poaching Hoosiers’ assistant Deland McCullough who serves as the associate head coach and works with the team’s running backs. College football insider Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports and The Athletic shared the news Monday night.
SOURCES: Indiana RB coach/associate head coach Deland McCullough is expected to become the new running backs coach at Notre Dame. Terrific hire for ND. The 49-year-old former NFL RB helped the Chiefs win a Super Bowl and has been on staff at USC, and IU.

McCullough returned to Indiana ahead of the 2021 season. He previously coached Hoosiers running backs from 2011-to-2016 before leaving for USC. He was on staff with the Kansas City Chiefs before coming back to Indiana.
McCullough played college football at Miami (Ohio) from 1992-95 before playing professionally from 1996-to-2001 with the Cincinnati Bengals and Philadelphia Eagles, the CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and the XFL’s Chicago Enforcers.
