Head coach Brian Kelly met with members of the media this morning to announce updates to his football coaching staff for the 2012 season. Here's a complete look at the staff:

Bob Diaco - Assistant Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers
Kerry Cooks - Co-Defensive Coordinator/Cornerbacks
Chuck Martin - Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks
Tony Alford - Running Backs and Slot Wide Receivers/Recruiting Coordinator
Scott Booker - Tight Ends/Special Teams Coordinator
Mike Denbrock - Outside Wide Receivers/Passing Game Coordinator
Bob Elliott - Safeties
Mike Elston - Defensive Line
Harry Hiestand - Offensive Line/Running Game Coordinator
Josh Reardon - Graduate Assistant for Defense
Pat Welsh - Graduate Assistant for Offense
Bill Brechin - Intern for Offense
David Grimes - Intern for Defense

As announced in January, Harry Hiestand and Bob Elliott are the newest faces on the Notre Dame coaching staff. Hiestand arrives from Tennessee, while Elliott spent the past two seasons coaching at Iowa State.

After two years as an intern with the Irish football program, Scott Booker was promoted to a full-time assistant coach position in early January.

Graduate assistants Josh Reardon and Pat Welsh join the Irish from Holy Cross (Mass.) and Grand Valley State, respectively.

Bill Brechin returns for his third season with the offensive coaching staff, while David Grimes ('09), who worked as an intern for player development during the 2011 season, will assist the defensive staff in 2012. Grimes was a wide receiver for the Fighting Irish from 2005-08, and served as tri-captain (along with David Bruton and Maurice Crum Jr.) during his senior season.

Check back to later in the day for a full release as well as video from this morning's press conference.
