Holtz to receive honorary degree from Notre Dame
SOUTH BEND, IND. (AP) - Former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz will be among 13 people to receive honorary degrees from the school he led to a national championship in 1988.
The university announced Wednesday that Holtz would be given an honorary doctor of laws degree. Notre Dame previously had announced that Defense Secretary Robert Gates would be the speaker at the commencement May 22 at Notre Dame Stadium.
Among the others who will receive honorary degrees are Iranian Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Shirin Ebadi, Nobel Prize-winning physicist John Mather, former NASA Administrator Michael Griffin and Tucson Bishop Gerald Kicanas.
Holtz coached the Irish from 1986-96, posting a 100-30-2 record. He also coached at William & Mary, North Carolina State, Arkansas, Minnesota and South Carolina. He now works as an analyst at ESPN.
