On Thursday, Mickens accepted Kellyís offer to rejoin him ó this time as a coach ó exactly eight days after he interviewed for the job thatís so critical to the Irish College Football Playoff aspirations in 2020. No other position group carries as many uncertainties out of ND's 11-2 season in 2019.

A source close to the process confirmed Mickens and ND coming to terms. The official announcement will come once he is run through Notre Dameís George OíLeary-inspired vetting process.

Yahoo! Sports' Pete Thamel was the first to announce Mickens' hiring.

Mickensí charge as Todd Lyghtís successor is to upgrade NDís cornerback recruiting as well as provide key backup and sub package pieces in 2020 to play behind and alongside projected starting corners, sixth-year grad student Shaun Crawford and junior-to-be TaRiq Bracy.

I like the hire.
Hamilton will teach him well.

Pshaw. Just another Friend of Brian. If Swarbrick really wanted to win he'd have hired Deion Sanders. #FireKelly.

Wish there was a way that we could’ve landed Mickens and Steeples. ND needs more young and hungry coaches in the building.
