AP Source: Notre Dame to promote Lea to D-coordinator

Two people with knowledge of the situation say Notre Dame is promoting linebackers coach Clark Lea to defensive coordinator, replacing Mike Elko, who left for Texas A&M last week.

The people spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because details of the move first reported by Yahoo Sports were still being finalized.

Lea came with Elko to Notre Dame from Wake Forest a year ago. Lea also worked with Elko at Bowling Green in 2012. The former Vanderbilt player started his coaching career at South Dakota State in 2007 and did stints at UCLA and Syracuse. This will be his first time as defensive coordinator.
