SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly has shaken up his staff following the departures of running backs coach Tim Hinton and offensive line coach Ed Warinner.

Chuck Martin, who had been coaching the defensive backs, is the new offensive coordinator for the Fighting Irish. He replaces Charley Molnar, who is the new coach at Massachusetts.

Martin was a coach and offensive coordinator at Grand Valley State, where Kelly previously coached.

The school also named defensive coordinator Bob Diaco an assistant head coach and promoted Scott Booker from intern to offensive assistant. Kerry Cooks is now co-defensive coordinator.
