Lou Holtz: The formula of life

Life is 10 percent
what happens to you

and 90 percent
how you respond to it.

Lou Holtz

Louis Leo "Lou" Holtz (born January 6, 1937) is a former American football player, coach, and analyst. He served as the head football coach at several universities in the nation. Holtz is the only college football coach to lead six different programs to bowl games and the only coach to guide four different programs to the final top 20 rankings. Holtz also coached the New York Jets of the National Football League (NFL) during the 1976 season.

He is often found as a guest on the popular Richmond, Virginia based Kain Road Radio. In 2005, Holtz joined ESPN as a college football analyst. On May 1, 2008, Holtz was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame.
