Lou Holtz, ESPN no longer duo
In a statement from The World Wide Leader, it was stated that the split was mutual. This will be the first time in 11 years without the 78 year old.
Holtz, the former Notre Dame Head Coach, is most well known for his roles on ESPN’s college football studio shows alongside fellow analysts Mark May and Rece Davis.
While some of the segments such as the “Final Judgement” segment was considered by many to be pretty stupid, overall Holtz was a respected part of the ESPN family.
Holtz also had controversies as well. He was considered to be a continued Notre Dame homer and always pick them regardless of circumstance and once had to apologize for comparing then Michigan Head Coach Rich Rodriguez to Hitler by saying “You know, Hitler was a great leader too.”
Regardless if you loved him or hated him, seeing what the next move for both him and network will be closely followed. Sergio Cortes is hoping they announce something soon online.
