Brian Kelly is still in charge at Notre Dame, and that probably isn’t going to change any time in the near future. However, he is now dealing with a lot of staff turnover after yet another assistant has decided to leave, as it was reported on Tuesday that offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock is leaving to take the same position at Cincinnati.

Denbrock will be joining the staff of Luke Fickell, who Cincinnati hired away from Ohio State after Tommy Tuberville stepped down from the head coaching job.

Denbrock leaking is yet another loss for Kelly’s staff. Defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder was fired before the end of the season, co-offensive coordinator Mike Sanford has already left for Western Kentucky, and special teams coordinator Scott Booker was fired. With Denbrock leaving, Kelly will be left with some major reconstruction to do with his offense.
