Father Ted Hesburgh Influenced Collegiate Athletics Fit on Campuses Nationwide

Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C. 1917 - 2015

Brennan played under Frank Leahy at Notre Dame graduating in 1949. He started for three seasons at halfback and led the Irish in receiving and scoring in '46 and '47 while also rushing for 1,269 career yards. After winning three straight city championships at Mount Carmel High School in Chicago, he returned to Notre Dame in 1953 to coach the freshman squad under Leahy. He succeeded Leahy as head coach in 1954 and his five-year 32-18 record included 9-1 and 8-2 records his first two seasons that ranked the Irish fourth and ninth, respectively, in the final Associated Press polls. In 1959 he became the player conditioning coach for the Cincinnati Reds in spring training and eventually joined a Chicago investment banking firm.
