Mason is a big loss for Notre Dame. He was largely credited with Notre Dame’s 7 blocked punts from a year ago, which led the country.
However, Biagi has history with Notre Dame. He previously served as a special teams analyst with the Fighting Irish in 2016. Since then, he’s been the special teams coordinator for North Texas, Purdue and Ole Miss.
As a player, Biagi was a punter and kicker for Marshall from 2004-07. He’s originally from Shelbyville, Kentucky.
Notre Dame has not yet announced Biagi’s hiring.
