Takeaways from Gerad Parker’s first press conference as Notre Dame’s offensive coordinator

Notre Dame made their elevation of gerad parker official over the weekend and today was the new offensive coordinators first time in front of the media with the new title.

Parker touched on a variety of topics and you can watch the entirety of his press conference here

. Head coach Marcus Freeman also spoke during the introduction but this was much more about Parker.

There was a lot to digest from the new Irish play caller and it was good to take a step forward towards spring football.

Here are my biggest takeaways from what Parker said today regarding this coming season and the future of the Irish offense.


Thoughts Parker’s opening statements, he touched on that he has to “hold everybody accountable to the standards set forth from the head coach, and then for me, in this offense.

” It’s great that he understands that the lead by example coach Freeman has already instilled that mentality.

Any team typically takes the best and worst attributes of their head coach and it seems like Parker and Freeman are in alignment with that.

Thoughts I’m going to do a deeper dive on what to expect from a Parker offense, during his time at West Virginia,

 but that’s not quite ready. What the new OC said regarding the offense was refreshing.
