Today on The Dan Patrick Show, Notre Dame's new head football coach Marcus Freeman told Dan that he was asked by Brian Kelly to come to LSU. But before Freeman could commit to Kelly, the Notre Dame shot callers contacted their defensive coordinator and offered him a new job.

Dan Patrick: "Did Brian Kelly ask you if you wanted to go to LSU?"
Marcus Freeman: "He did."
Dan Patrick: "And what did you say?"
Marcus Freeman: "I said I need a job, so yea, let me talk to my wife. That's the first thing I said. That gave me time to figure this whole thing out, and it all happened extremely fast after that...But when I started to get calls from our Athletic Director and I started to get text messages from people highly regarded around Notre Dame, I realized 'oh this might be pretty real.'"
