Former Notre Dame captain Maurice Crum hired at Ole Miss

Former Notre Dame linebacker and captain Maurice Crum has been a sought-after college coach over the past decade. Many see him as having a bright future, including Lane Kiffin. We know Kiffin thinks highly of him because Krum reportedly has been hired as the co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Ole Miss. This comes after he’s spent the past five years at Western Kentucky, most recently as defensive coordinator:

Crum played for the Irish from 2005 to 2008. Over 38 career games, he had 248 tackles, 19 tackles for loss, eight sacks and six forced fumbles. His lone touchdown came via fumble return in the Irish’s 2007 road win over UCLA. He returned to the Irish as a graduate assistant in 2015 before taking off for his lone season on the staff at Indiana State.

Congratulations to Crum for landing his most high-profile coaching job yet. Here’s hoping this is the next stop on his way to leading his own program.
