As Technical Team Lead of CKB, Durkin coordinates with curators – scientists who organize massive amounts of data every day regarding genes, mutations and tumor types – in an attempt to turn this massive information into useful tools for medical practitioners. His daunting challenge: turning this data into tools useful to the medical community.
Early Life and Education
Durkin started for Bowling Green from 1997 to 2000 as both defensive end and linebacker, before earning his master’s in business marketing before becoming a graduate assistant for Notre Dame before eventually taking over defensive coordinator duties in 2003.
After briefly serving at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Fort Wayne, he moved on to Sacred Heart of Jesus and St. Joseph Parish in Fort Wayne where he helped launch Christ Renews His Parish retreats for seniors. Pam Allmandinger, health care representative at both parishes, reported one senior who told her the retreat transformed their life completely.
The commission ruled that Durkin had failed to properly supervise strength and conditioning coach Rick Court, whom some players claim was abusive. Durkin has denied having knowledge of any possible wrongdoing by Court.
Durkin is known for his outstanding recruiting skills and talent development ability. Throughout his coaching career, he has helped recruit multiple top-25 classes. Furthermore, he acts as a mentor for young coaches.
At Michigan, he led a defensive unit that finished fourth nationally for scoring defense and produced All-Big Ten defensive backs like Jourdan Lewis and Jabrill Peppers.
Durkin is also active in his church life. He regularly concelebrates Mass, hears confessions, takes Communion to nursing homes and volunteers at Sacred Heart. When not coaching or volunteering he enjoys watching Western movies and traveling to Florida as well as spending time with family.

Though now retired from his duties as a priest, Father Peter continues to help others. Pam Allmandinger recalls seeing Father Peter bring Christ Renews His Parish program to St Joseph. Participants enjoyed it so much they provided testimonials.

He enjoyed hunting and fishing as hobbies, along with spending time with family and friends. Additionally, he was an avid supporter of University of Montana football team as well as Miami Dolphins baseball club.
Allmandinger noted that Allmandinger also introduced Christ Renews His Parish program to St. Joseph, with participants telling her it changed their lives after attending one retreat.
