Lou Holtz is one of the most successful college football coaches of all time.

Now he’s embarking on a new project that no one saw coming.

And coach Lou Holtz teamed up with Trump supporters to make this surprise announcement.

Former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz is one of former President Donald Trump’s most outspoken supporters in sports.

Trump awarded him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2020 for his 34-year career as a college football coach, which included leading Notre Dame to the national championship in 1988.

“I want to assure you how proud I am, not only to receive the award — I’m even prouder to receive it from President Donald Trump, who I think was the greatest President during my lifetime,” Holtz said after receiving the award.

Lou Holtz launches a podcast with America First think tank

Holtz is starting a podcast called The Lou Holtz Show with the backing of the America First Policy Institute, a nonprofit founded by members of the Trump administration.

The tagline for the podcast is “Coaching America Back to Greatness.”

“There is no one more passionate about restoring the culture of this country than me,” Holtz said on social media.

The first episode of the show will feature Auburn men’s basketball coach Bruce Pearl.

Upcoming guests include former college swimmer Riley Gaines, former Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer, Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), ESPN’s Reece Davis, and the star of his 1988 national championship team, Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown.

Holtz says his podcast isn’t political

Despite his political leanings, Holtz said his podcast would be for everyone.

“The Lou Holtz Show is my chance to come alongside this generation with the same message my parents taught me,” Holtz said in a statement posted on the site. “It’s a chance to hear from heroes of our culture. It’s a chance for the younger generation to hear that hard work, education, and responsibility will change YOUR life.”

Holtz is bringing his lunch pail work ethic that defined his coaching career.

“I don’t care if you’re Republican, Democrat, Independent, white, black, yellow, or any color in between. This show is to inspire people to do the right thing. Each episode of my show will feature a unique guest who has had a remarkable influence on American culture,” Holtz added.

“I’d like to know where Lou Holtz is now,” Ohio State football Ryan Day asked after his team beat Notre Dame with a touchdown on the final play of the game last season.

Lou Holtz made a splash announcement for his new podcast with a number of top guests from the world of sports.
