    Jesse Harper: The Game Changer

    Former coach and athletics director set the path for Notre Dame's football excellence 100 years ago

    Holtz coached 132 games in 11 seasons at Notre Dame and guided his teams to an overall record of 100-32-2 as he holds the Irish record for most games coached and is second to Knute Rockne in total victories. Holtz led Notre Dame to the 1988 national championship and remains 11th on the NCAA all-time win list for Division I-A coaches. Holtz took his Notre Dame teams to nine straight New Year's Day bowl games from 1987 through '95 and coached the Irish to finishes of sixth or better in the final Associated Press poll in five seasons. Holtz was named the national coach of the year in 1988 by several organizations and saw his team play the most difficult schedule in the country three different years. Holtz had a 32-20-2 mark against teams ranked in the Associated Press top 25 during his career. Before coming to Notre Dame, the Kent State graduate previously served as head coach at William & Mary (1969-71), North Carolina State (1972-75), Arkansas (1977-83) and Minnesota (1984-85).
