Best known as a football coach and motivational speaker, Holtz is a West Virginia native who had a brief career as a player at Kent State. Famously quick witted, his inspirational abilities have allowed him to hold head coaching positions at six different academic institutions and to compile a 249-132-7 record. Although hired by Notre Dame with a lifetime contract, it is rumored that he was forced to retire before he broke Knute Rockne’s record of 105 wins with that team. He is a commentator for ESPN and was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2008. A long-time Republican, he frequently appears on Fox News, but also donated to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 effort.
