Lou Holtz Will Speak at 2010 Commencement

Former University of Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz will deliver the keynote address at Indiana Tech’s 2010 Commencement on May 15.

Lou Holtz“We are very excited that Lou Holtz has accepted our invitation,” said Indiana Tech President Arthur E. Snyder. “He is an excellent example for our students as we encourage them to set high goals for themselves and take leadership roles in whatever field they pursue.”

Holtz is widely regarded as one of the most successful college football coaches of all time. He compiled a 243-127-7 career record, and he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2008. He is the only coach in the history of college football to:

  • Take six different teams to a bowl game.
  • Win five bowl games with different teams.
  • Have four different college teams ranked in the final Top 20 poll.

During 11 seasons at Notre Dame, Holtz posted a 100-30-2 record that included a national championship in 1988 and a 23-game winning streak, the longest in Notre Dame history.

Holtz currently serves as a college football studio analyst on ESPN.  He also is the author of six books, including the best-sellers The Fighting Spirit; Winning Everyday: A Game Plan for Success; and Wins, Losses and Lessons.

Holtz is a highly sought-after speaker on the subject of overcoming seemingly impossible challenges by setting your own goals and working to achieve them.  He has built a reputation as a motivator, a demanding disciplinarian, and someone who relishes challenges and hard work.

The Commencement ceremony will honor more than 550 students from Indiana Tech locations throughout the state who have earned an associate, bachelor’s or master’s degree. Graduate students must file a Petition for Graduation by February 1, 2010 to participate in the ceremony.
