Notre Dame OC rumors could be about to heat up.

Current offensive coordinator Tommy Rees has been linked to the vacant Alabama OC job. According to multiple reports, Rees will be in Tuscaloosa to interview for the job on Thursday.

Rees has been on Notre Dame’s coaching staff since 2017 and its offensive coordinator since 2020. He’s also a former Notre Dame quarterback, playing from the Irish from 2010-13.

Rees, 30, is viewed as an up-and-coming assistant coach in the college ranks. Last season, Notre Dame ranked 45th nationally in yards per play despite losing starting quarterback Tyler Buchner in Week 2 to a shoulder injury that cost him the rest of the regular season.

However, Notre Dame fans were often frustrated with Rees and the Irish’s offense in 2022. That was especially true after losses to Marshall and Stanford during the first half of the season.

Here’s how Notre Dame fans and media reacted to the news that Rees will be interviewing for the OC job at Alabama:
