Notre Dame-Fairfield head football coach Chris Sadler has announced his resignation from the post after three seasons due to family commitments. Sadler met with the team on Thursday afternoon to tell them of his decision. Athletic Director Rob Bleggi will begin the search of a new head coach immediately.
“It has been an honor being the head football coach at Notre Dame of Fairfield and have put in a lot of hours, with the help of my assistant coaches, turning around the culture of Notre Dame football,” Sadler said in a statement released Thursday afternoon. “But I think it’s time to take that focus and put it back on my family. I hope over the past three seasons I have helped the football players at Notre Dame grow as young men and improve as athletes.
