Irish assistant rips Niumatalolo

SOUTH BEND, Ind. » Notre Dame associate head coach Corwin Brown criticized Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo, a former UH assistant, for his postgame comments about the Irish defensive game plan and for the way his team uses what Brown called “;malicious”; illegal cut blocks.

“;I thought it was very disappointing what the Navy coach said after the game,”; Brown said. “;He didn't want something to be misconstrued, then he said it regarding how we prepared and what we prepared to do.”;

Brown went into his criticism of Niumatalolo after practice, cutting off a reporter and speaking for 2 minutes about the Navy coach.
