Scout.com and IrishEyes.com are committed to continuing to provide the latest free and premium content on Notre Dame team news and recruiting.
Jeff Baumhower's primary responsibility will be covering Notre Dame recruiting. Baumhower has been a member of the online Notre Dame community for over ten years, in addition to covering Irish recruiting for five years through Scout.com. He has cultivated a number of strong relationships and personal connections over that period.
"I'm excited about the future of this site and the opportunities of working with the Scout.com national team. I believe my experience and relationships with the Notre Dame community, teamed with the reach of the Scout.com national recruiting experts will continue to provide a tremendous value to the members."
"I'm excited to be back and will work extremely hard to earn your support," said Baumhower.
Baumhower will be joined by Scout.com's vast team of recruiting experts from across the country to provide Notre Dame fans with the best in-depth recruiting knowledge anywhere on the internet. Regional Managers Brandon Huffman, Bob Lichtenfels, Chad Simmons and Allen Trieu are regarded as the best in the industry in their respective regions. National Analysts Scott Kennedy and Allen Wallace will also support the recruiting coverage effort on IrishEyes.com.
Tim O'Malley will be covering the Notre Dame football and basketball beat. O'Malley was born and raised in South Bend and is a 1995 graduate of the University of Notre Dame. He first covered the Irish in 1997-98 as a correspondent for The Herald-Palladium, in St. Joseph, MI. After a nine-year career in Atlanta writing for Sporting Goods Dealer Magazine and FantasyGuru.com, O'Malley relocated to South Bend where he joined BlueandGold.com covering both football and basketball for the Irish through weekly columns, game scouting reports, and his BGI Blog: Old School with O'Malley.
"Covering Notre Dame's football and basketball programs is a lifelong dream," said O'Malley. "I look forward to discussing my views and opinions with Scout's loyal audience and fan base on a daily basis."
"Notre Dame is one of the very best markets in the country, and it's imperative that we bring aboard content providers who have a proven track record," said Joel Cox, Executive Director of Network Development for Scout.com. "I've known Jeff a long time, and to say that he's a hard worker is an understatement. Covering the recruiting beat in any market, let alone Notre Dame, requires maximum effort and a deep commitment to providing fans with the latest information in a constantly shifting space. Equally important is a reliable football and basketball beat writer. As Notre Dame has a huge national fanbase, it's critical that we provide complete and accurate team coverage to satiate the Notre Dame nation. Tim came highly recommended and will bring a unique viewpoint to Notre Dame team coverage."
Baumhower and O'Malley will join IrishEyes.com immediately.
