Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly announced the firing of defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder on Sunday. The Irish have the No. 5 ranked recruiting class in the country, but the six highest ranked prospects in the class are all offensive players. The highest ranked defensive commit, linebacker David Adams, said the coaching change won't impact his status with the Irish. "Not at all," Adams said. "I'm 100 percent to Notre Dame."
