Former LSU offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock recently spoke with reporters in South Bend about his decision to leave Baton Rouge for the Notre Dame OC job. Per SDS:
quote:

“Number one, it was a really hard decision to leave LSU,” Denbrock said. “Our family was happy there. Great program. A lot of respect for coach (Brian) Kelly obviously. We’ve worked together on and off over 30+ years or however long I’ve been doing this. So that was difficult. And really, I wasn’t really looking for a new opportunity.

“But when Notre Dame called and we had a couple conversations, this is a place that I’ve always felt my heart was. It’s where I’ve always wanted to be. The opportunity to come back here presented itself and it was a difficult decision but the right decision. And for a number of reasons.”
Denbrock went on to talk about Notre Dame and how going back to South Bend allows him to get closer to family and his home state of Michigan.

Good for him. He was very good here. These guys barely get to see their families due to the job demands, so I can't fault him for wanting to be closer to them. Plus it's apparently a job he's wanted to return to.

It was important to leave LSU? Probably should have worded that differently.

We will be fine and highly likely even better with the OL talent being brought in and the skilled players. JD was special and I have to say made the OC better.

Some people just can't handle all the success at a new place and they just need go back to mediocrity.

I don't blame him for it but don't pretend it's something else.
He got the cash cow in Jayden.

The reason? No JD to make him look good and mask his bad offensive calls.

No the reason is Notre Dame is a step up and not even a lateral move if y’all want to believe it or not.

After visiting ND while on a conference last year and living in Baton Rouge periodically including college I can't say I blame his family, especially if they have family up there.

It is pure shite in south bend and the surrounding area. Been there many many times. The only good thing about that area is the deer hunting is pretty awesome. Other than that is it old and country. Think of driving down 190 from Baton Rouge to Texas. A whole lot of nothing
