Notre Dame offensive coordinator Tommy Rees was offered a boatload of money to follow Brian Kelly to LSU as his offensive coordinator this past December. That is well documented at this point, and we all know Rees stayed at Notre Dame instead of taking the big pay day.
Would Rees be able to turn down the NFL however?
The thought hadn’t crossed my mind until former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky mentioned Rees in a tweet regarding the Los Angeles Rams and a potential opening for their offensive coordinator position.
I would assume O’Connell would want Liam Coen as OC and the @RamsNFL should see if they can pry @T_Rees11 from ND to come be OC now… https://t.co/M6TlhIa6Oq

It’s literally one analyst who has a history of being high on Rees, but let’s take a second to dissect.
It’s one thing to stay at Notre Dame instead of taking another college job. It’s quite another to think there wouldn’t be an incredible interest to join Sean McVay’s staff and coordinate an NFL offense that has as much star power as any in the league.
If nothing else, it’s certainly something worth being aware of as the coaching staff carousel continues to spin in South Bend this winter.
