COLUMBIA. S.C. — Lou Holtz, the legendary football coach, says he has tested positive for COVID-19.
The 83-year-old former college and NFL coach confirmed the test Thursday to Columbia, South Carolina TV station WOLO. "I don't have a lot of energy right now,'' Holtz told the ABC station.
Holtz led Notre Dame to the 1988 national title in a Hall of Fame career. He has worked for ESPN and campaigned for President Donald Trump. Holtz is set to receiver the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Trump.
Holtz retired from coaching in 2004. He was 249-132-7 in 33 seasons at six colleges and was coach of the New York Jets for one season.
