Legendary Coach Lou Holtz Launches The Lou Holtz Show to Interview Athletes and Inspire the Nation

March 13, 2024

ORLANDO, FL – Today, Hall of Fame college football Coach Lou Holtz announced the launch of his podcast, The Lou Holtz Show. The podcast, produced by the America First Policy Institute, where Holtz serves as the Chair of the Center for 1776, will premiere on March 14, featuring an interview with Auburn Basketball Coach Bruce Pearl. New episodes will be released every other week.

Holtz, one of the most successful college football coaches of all time, has always said the culture of a country determines whether it’s great or not. Each episode of The Lou Holtz Show will feature a unique guest who has had a remarkable influence on American culture. Upcoming guests include Heisman Trophy winner and NFL Hall of Famer Tim Brown, U.S. Senator and former Auburn football Coach Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), commentator and former NFL and college coach Urban Meyer, and LIV golfer and Majesticks GC Co-Captain Ian Poulter.

“The purpose of the podcast is not to promote Republicans, Democrats, White, Black. It’s just to get people to make good choices. We need to get back to teaching young people about obligation, and how to help other people, how to make good choices, and understand that wherever you are in life, it is because of the choices you make,” Holtz said.

Holtz had an extensive career as a football coach for several universities, including coaching Notre Dame to the 1988 National Championship. He also coached the New York Jets in the NFL. After retiring from coaching, Holtz worked as a college football studio analyst on ESPN and was on SiriusXM Radio as a co-host for two sports programs. He founded the Holtz Charitable Foundation in 1996 to provide scholarships to trade schools and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his contributions to society by President Donald J. Trump in 2020.

Holtz will bring his experience on and off the field to the new podcast, which, in his own words, is meant to inspire people to do the right thing. The Lou Holtz Show will be available wherever you listen to podcasts.

Holtz is the father of four children and grandparent to nine children. He resides in Orlando, Florida.
