Bob Diaco’s last 3 years at Notre Dame and his Defensive Suppression

Bob Diaco’s last 3 years at Notre Dame and his Defensive Suppression

I know I heard a lot from Husker Fans this past week that Diaco needs to go and that his defensive scheme stinks.

Take a look at some of these stats from his last 3 years as Notre Dames Defensive Coordinator. Year 3 (2012) really stands out to me. He held on average each team to below 57% of their normal average points per game. That was Notre Dame’s year when they played for a National Championship, and they had the #1 toughest schedule that year.
