One of the biggest names in college football was in Charlottesville Sunday night, as former Notre Dame head coach Lou Holtz was speaking at the Charlottesville Catholic School as part of the 10th annual Gene Corrigan Golf Tournament.
The yearly tournament helps raise money for area Catholic schools, and will be played Monday.
Holtz coached the Irish to a national championship in 1988, which is the program's last national title.
He's the only coach to lead six different schools to a bowl game, and is currently an analyst for ESPN.
Holtz often adopts the persona of 'Dr. Lou' on the network, doling out advice to teams across the nation, and the good doctor even had a few words of wisdom for the Cavaliers on their current for-game losing streak.
"That's all part of life," says Holtz. "The important thing is 'Why did we lose them?' Did we lose them because what we did, and that's normally the case. We turned the football over. We weren't good enough fundamentally. We had missed assignments. We had foolish penalties, etcetera. All we can ask you to do is be the best you can be."
Former UVA and Notre Dame Athletic Director Gene Corrigan says, "We used to work together and I know Lou, his kids all went to Notre Dame - so its pretty logical for him to come do this. Just a good friend, looking out for another good friend."
The golf tournament tees off Monday at 8 AM at Glenmore Country Club.
