Notre Dame Football: Cornerbacks coach Todd Lyght is no longer with the Irish

We kind of knew this was coming

NCAA Football: Notre Dame Spring Game Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will have to replace another coach this offseason. Cornerbacks coach, Todd Lyght, will no longer be on the Notre Dame staff moving forward.

Lyght is a legend at Notre Dame with a career that included a national championship and two consensus All-American seasons. He was the #5 overall pick in the 1991 NFL Draft, and had a stellar pro career with the Rams and Lions. Lyght began coaching the Irish in 2015 and helped develop guys like KeiVarae Russell and Julian Love.

There is no word on what Lyght may do next, but this seems to be something that he wanted to do as his family still lives in California. Good luck to Todd in the future.

The Irish will now have a second spot to fill on the staff with both Chip Long and Todd Lyght gone. I have no names to offer as a replacement, but I’m sure there will be some lists going around in the near future. It was just two years ago that Notre Dame hired Terry Joseph to coach safeties after the departure of Mike Elko.
