Texas A&M adds Notre Dame coordinator Elko to Fisher's staff

Texas A&M has hired Notre Dame defensive coordinator Mike Elko to coach Jimbo Fisher's defense.

Texas A&M announced the hiring on Thursday, a few hours after Fighting Irish coach Brian Kelly posted on Twitter that Elko had accepted an offer to be the Aggies' defensive coordinator. Elko was at Notre Dame for one season and the Fighting Irish defense took a big step forward, from 5.40 yards per play allowed (45th in the nation) to 5.05 (25th). He spent the previous three seasons at Wake Forest.

"I'm excited to bring one of the top defensive minds in the nation onto our staff here at Texas A&M," Fisher said in a statement "No matter where Mike has worked, he has consistently produced defenses that have been among the nation's best."
