Marcus Freeman Career

Marcus Freeman was a student at Ohio State University from 2004 until 2008, during which time he participated in a total of 51 games and started 37 of them. He was a two-time selection for the Second team of All-Big Ten Linebackers and started 26 games on the weak side, 11 games on the strong side, and was a linebacker overall. He concluded his career with 268 tackles, 140 of which were solo, and was credited with 21.5 tackles for loss, 6.0 sacks, 15 quarterback hurries, 2 forced fumbles, and 1 fumble recovery. He ranked 19th on the school’s all-time record of tackles.

In January of 2013, he was given the position of linebackers coach at Purdue. Freeman received a promotion to the position of co-defensive coordinator for the 2016 season. Freeman coached Danny Ezechukwu and Ja’Whaun Bentley, both of whom would go on to have successful careers in the National Football League, helping the Boilermakers turn their linebackers unit into a strength.

Freeman joined the football coaching staff of the Cincinnati Bearcats on December 13, 2016, taking on the roles of defensive coordinator and linebacker coach. Freeman helped transform the Bearcats into one of the strongest defensive teams in the American Athletic Conference (AAC) after being one of the first hires made by new head coach Luke Fickell.

In 2018, the Freeman defense led the American Athletic Conference (AAC) in rushing defense, scoring defense, and total defense, and they placed among the Top 15 in all three categories in the NCAA FBS. The following year, the Bearcats finished in first place in the 2019 American Athletic Conference rankings in scoring defense for the second season in a row. They also rated among the top three in the league in rushing and total defense.

Before the end of the 2020 season, Freeman had turned down a number of opportunities to stay in Cincinnati. These opportunities included the chance to become the linebackers coach at Ohio State again, the linebackers coach for the Tennessee Titans, and the defensive coordinator at Michigan State. Freeman has been regarded as one of the emerging stars of the collegiate coaching ranks by a number of national sites prior to this recent recognition.

During the 2020 season, Freeman was recognized as the 247Sports Defensive Coordinator of the Year, in addition to being a finalist for the Broyles Award.Freeman was brought on board with Notre Dame on January 8, 2021 to serve as the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. The head coach, Brian Kelly, felt that Freeman was the best candidate for the role. Before this hiring decision was made, there were rumblings that Freeman would take up the same position at LSU.

After the conclusion of the regular season in 2021, Brian Kelly accepted a position as the head coach of the Louisiana State University school team. On December 3, 2021, Freeman was chosen to succeed him as head coach, making him the 32nd person to hold that position in the program’s entire history. Freeman assumed leadership right away and coached the Irish in the Fiesta Bowl, when they were defeated by Oklahoma State.
