Ex-USC Coach Lou Holtz has covid-19
Legendary football coach Lou Holtz says he has tested positive for covid-19.
The former University of South Carolina, Notre Dame and NFL coach confirmed the test to Columbia TV station WOLO.
"I don't have a lot of energy right now,'' Holtz said.
Holtz led Notre Dame to the 1988 national title in a Hall of Fame career.
He coached the Carolina Gamecocks 2 times in his career.
He resigned the 2nd time after an ugly brawl between his team and the rival Clemson Tigers.
He has worked for ESPN and campaigned for President Donald Trump.
Holtz is expected to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom from the President.
Holtz retired from coaching in 2004. He was 249-132-7 in 33 seasons at 6 colleges and coached the New York Jets a single season.
He has been a best-selling author of motivational books and popular speaker on the professional speaking circuit.
After the Gamecocks lost all 11 of their games in his 1st year back at Carolina, Holtz quipped he wanted to meet his predecessor who had won at least 1 game the year before.
Among his humorous quotes was, "On this team we're all united in a common goal: to keep my job."
