What is his story?
His father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with a low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. His mother was a fifteen-year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. His father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. Marty's childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring he'd make meat helmets. When he was insolent he was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds; pretty standard really. At the age of twelve he received his first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Wilma ritualistically shaved his testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking. I suggest you try it.

Biagi may not meet the level of Mason's ST with the Irish last year, but he surely can't be a complete dud if he is a two-time finalist for FootballScoop's special teams coach of the year award.

Thank you, sounds like a well adjusted man from a typical upbringing. Also, I thought Al Gore invented the ?

BVG won the Broyles. Just saying...
20 years ago.

I don't understand BVG's relevance to Biagi. It was a stupid hire when it happened, the results proved that, it was a hire made by the previous head coach, it's over and done with.

This doesn't feel like a "buy low" hire whatsoever.

I think people are mostly just upset that Mason is gone so soon, when it felt like we finally had a true stud at the spot after decades of shit. And by people, I start with myself first. As an aside, I hope this guy does great things here at ND.

Mason wasn't even that good. Grupe missed some kicks and remember that punt return his unit gave up against BYU?!

I refuse to get myself attached to assistant coaches. They come and they go. Zero angst over it whatsoever. With all the changes in the college game, a lot of guys who don't want the headaches will go to the NFL and never look back. There will be plenty of dudes who like the college coaching job and or enjoy recruiting. It's those they'll have to find, but nothing is ever set in stone. Not to mention the Carousel opens earlier and earlier now with firings happening in September/October. Obvious tampering occurs through back channels. Admin and HC have to navigate it as one more thing to deal with.

Parker, Guidugli, Rudolph, Biagi. It's a solid quad of replacements. McCullough and Stuckey staying for one more year is critical.

This is my takeaway as well. For recruiting stability we absolutely needed to keep those two. If we wanted any shot at 5* WRs or RBs, letting your position coach get poached away is not how do it.

The guy did a little half wave by his belt buckle. Borderline play, could get a player killed.

You don't understand the concept that just because someone wanted an award, it's possible they won't be a good fit for Notre Dame?

I don't understand what Brian Van Gorder winning an award two decades ago has to do with Biagi being nominated for something totally different within the last five years. Not to mention they are two totally different individuals in terms of their circumstances, coaching resume and pedigree upon being hired at Notre Dame.

Biagi spent a year at ND as an analyst and was probably the easiest assistant coaching hire in recent memory, so how he isn't a good fit remains to be seen. Maybe he'll prove otherwise. For all the hand wringers that hate seeing assistant coaches go, he sounds like a guy that could potentially be around for bit so long as they'll have him and his units perform well.

Biagi is pretty well respected and is still somewhat early in his coaching career. Van Gorder, by the time his buddy hired him at ND, was a job hopper in his mid 50s.
