Paul Finebaum isn't giving up on Marcus Freeman
ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum isn’t ready to pull the plug on Marcus Freeman’s time at Notre Dame following the 0-2 start.
Notre Dame suffered an upset loss at home to Marshall on Saturday. This loss stunned Notre Dame’s program and caused many people to be concerned about the team’s direction.
In an appearance on ESPN, Finebaum spoke about not being ready to quit on Freeman.
“You know me guys, I’m always quick to jump the gun on anything but I’m not going to jump the gun yet on Marcus Freeman,” Finebaum said on Keyshawn, JWill and Max. “Yeah, we can be critical. We can wonder whether this was a great coach.”
Freeman is 0-3 as a head coach. He suffered a loss to Oklahoma State in last season’s Fiesta Bowl, which was his first game as a head coach. Freeman started off the 2022 season with 2 losses to Ohio State and Marshall. The pressure is on Freeman to turn the season around.
Notre Dame also lost starting quarterback Tyler Buchner for the season in the loss.
Notre Dame will seek its first win under Freeman on Saturday against California.
