Head Football Coach Lou Holtz
Holtz's stab at professional football-between his tenures at North Carolina State and Arkansas-produced a 3-10 record. He resigned the week of the Jets' final regular-season game.
Before becoming head coach at William & Mary in '69, Holtz served as an assistant coach at Iowa (freshmen, 1960), William & Mary (offensive backs, 1961-63), Connecticut (defensive backs, 1964-65), South Carolina (defensive backs, 1966-67) and Ohio State (defensive backs, 1968). The Buckeyes won the national championship in '68 in his one season on the Ohio State staff. He worked under such respected coaches as Forest Evashevski at Iowa, Rick Forzano at Connecticut, Paul Dietzel at South Carolina and Woody Hayes at Ohio State.
