Notre Dame ready to hire, according to multiple sources chance stuck as its next wide receiver coach, replacing Dale Alexander,
Stuckey was the wide receivers coach for Baylor this past season, the Big 12 champs. This was his first season as a full-time assistant coach after two seasons in an off-field role with Clemson, his alma mater.
Notre Dame interviews Stuckey and Purdue co-offensive coordinator/wide receiver coach jamarcus shepherd, who eventually took a job in Washington. According to sources, Stucky did not appear in the interview process as the lead candidate but blew away everyone who appeared in the interview with his knowledge and passion.
Speaking to sources, Stucky came highly recommended by Baylor’s head coach Dave Aranda and Clemson head coach dabo swinney, who was the post coach of Stucky in the college and also appointed him in 2019-20.
Baylor finished the 2021 season as Big 12 champ before defeating Ole Miss in the Sugar Bowl. The Bears’ offense jumped from 23.3 points per game to 31.6 points per game in the Stucky’s first season, and the pass offense went from 94th in passing ratings in 2020 to 38th in 2021.
Stuckey has almost no experience as a coach, but sources say that Notre Dame coaches view his NFL playing experience as part of the evaluation process, as it were. Brian Hartline, who moved to Ohio State from a sports career. Hartline, of course, almost immediately developed into one of the best wide receiver coaches in the game.
Looks like Notre Dame is hoping Stucky can do the same.
Under the Protection of Stucky, Senior Wideout Tyquan Thornton Had a breakout season for a career-best 62 passes of 948 yards and 10 touchdowns.
