Game 516 | August 14, 1997 | Lou Holtz
After his two-year stint as football coach of the Minnesota Gophers, Holtz spent the next 11 years as the head coach at Notre Dame. Between 1988 and 1993, Holtz's Notre Dame teams posted a 64-9-1 record including the 1989 National Championship. His sudden departure from Notre Dame sparked rumors that several members of the Vikings Board of Directors were interested in having Holtz replace Denny Green as Vikings coach. He accepted the head coaching job at South Carolina in 1999 and remained there until retiring after the 2004 season.
