There are only a few great speaking legends, and Lou Holtz is one of them.  His presentation “Trust, Love, and Commitment,” truly transcends athletics into the world of business and personal achievement.  Lou became the head coach at the University of Notre Dame in 1985, and in a few short years directed the “Fighting Irish” to the national championship and has brought back a level of excellence that is associated with Notre Dame Football.  When he took over as head football coach, he said he had not accepted the position to become another Knute Rockne, Frank Leahy, or Ara Parseghian. Yet, after six seasons —including a consensus national championship in 1988, a record 23 game winning streak that ranks as the longest in Notre Dame history, a sparkling 43-7 (.860) record over the last four seasons and an overall 155-17 mark during those six years— his accomplishments, nonetheless, have positioned him alongside those Fighting Irish coaching legends. The 9-3 record put up by Notre Dame in 1990 came against what the NCAA rated the most difficult schedule in the country in its preseason ratings. The Irish defeated five teams that ranked in the Associated Press top 25 at the time of the game— and defeated six teams that eventually qualified for postseason bowl invitations. Notre Dame’s appearance in the 1991 Orange Bowl on the Heels of its ‘88 Cotton, ‘89 Fiesta and ‘90 Orange Bowl appearances mark the first time in history the Irish have played in four consecutive bowl games. His work in 1988 earned him national coach-of-the-year honors from the Football Writers Association of America [FWAA], The Sporting News, Football News as well as the Touchdown Club of Washington, D.C. and CBS Sports. Holtz has also coached for William & Mary, Ohio State, Connecticut, and South Carolina.  In 1999, he joined University of South Carolina’s athletic staff as head coach of its football team.
