Marcus Freeman is officially the head football coach of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

After days of speculation that the former ND DC would be taking the job after Brian Kelly’s exit, the Fighting Irish announced his hiring Friday morning. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Contract details aren’t known at this time, but you can bet he’s getting paid a substantial amount of money.

While I’m not a Notre Dame fan, I do know plenty of them, and they’re all very excited about Freeman’s ascension to the head coaching position.

He’s young, passionate and seems to be a great fit for the culture the Fighting Irish are trying to cultivate and maintain.

Furthermore, his hiring should keep most of Notre Dame’s recruiting class together and a lot of assistants will likely hang around.

While it’s impossible to know for sure how he’ll do until he gets a full season under his belt, the early indications seem to be that this is a big win for Notre Dame.
