Former Obama Chief of Staff takes post at Notre Dame’s Keough School

The newest addition to Notre Dame‘s instructor ranks has a Presidential flair to him.

Denis McDonough served as chief of staff to President Barack Obama during the second term of Obama’s presidency. Now, the South Bend Tribune is reporting he’s been named an executive fellow at the new Keough School of Global Affairs at Notre Dame.

What that means is he’ll be an instructor at the global policy seminar for the inaugural 38 graduate student class in the Master of Global Affairs program.

In addition to serving as President Obama’s chief of staff, McDonough held several positions in the National Security Council. Also, he was one of a small group of people that joined Obama to monitor the progress of a Navy SEAL raid that resulted in Osama bin Laden’s death.
