    Chad Klunder is in his 12th season at Notre Dame and second as associate athletic director for football operations. In his role, Klunder coordinates and oversees all day-to-day administrative and operational details including team travel, budgets, pre-season camp arrangements, the annual coaches clinic and summer camps.

Harvard in 2001 finished 9-0 in the Ivy League and became the first Harvard team to go unbeaten or untied in conference play since 1913.

    Klunder also served as a graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach at Minnesota - and worked as a graduate assistant football coach at St. Cloud State. At St. Cloud, he coached Randy Martin, who was a finalist in 1995 and '96 for the Harlon Hill Trophy that goes to the NCAA Division II player of the year. The Waverly, Iowa, native played defensive back at Wartburg College in Waverly. He earned four letters, was twice a unanimous all-league pick and gained honorable mention All-America recognition. He served as a Wartburg co-captain in 1994 when his team advanced to the NCAA Division III quarterfinals.

    Klunder received a degree in sports management from Wartburg in 1995 and has done master's degree coursework at St. Cloud State, Minnesota and Notre Dame. He is married to the former Lisa Malin, who is executive director of the Kelly Cares Foundation. The couple has one daughter, Allyson, and resides in Granger.
