SOUTH BEND, Ind. — He is the only man to lead six universities to bowl games. Still, Lou Holtz never considered coaching his primary calling. He had a lot more to teach than X’s and O’s.
“I coached life. The same thing that would enable you to be a good player would enable you to be a good student, a good father, a good business person, et cetera,” he said.
Holtz, who led Notre Dame to its last national championship in 1988 and also coached William & Mary, North Carolina State, Arkansas, Minnesota and South Carolina during his 33-season career, will be enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.
