    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.
