Jimbo Fisher has his defensive coordinator. Notre Dame defensive coordinator Mike Elko is joining Fisher’s Texas A&M staff, according a post on Twitter by Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly.
Elko, 41, spent one season with the Irish after three seasons as the defensive coordinator for Wake Forest and, before that, five seasons heading the defense at Bowling Green. Elko grew up in South Brunswick, N.J., and played safety at the University of Pennsylvania from 1995-98.
Fisher announced five additions to his coaching staff on Wednesday. He replaced Kevin Sumlin in early December.
