SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick says he's feeling positive about the outlook of the Fighting Irish football team heading into the fall.
Swarbrick says the Irish should be better after adding Frank Verducci as offensive line coach, Tony Alford as running backs coach and Randy Hart as defensive line coach. He also says Notre Dame had a strong recruiting season.
Swarbrick was named athletic director just over a year ago. He says he believes there will be a better team dynamic this season. He says Notre Dame's 49-21 over Hawaii in the Hawaii Bowl boosted the team's spirits.
Notre Dame begins practice on Aug. 8.
