Now that Dr. Lou has conquered the Tokyo Bowl, there's not a whole lot left to accomplish. There is one thing left on Lou's plate, and according to the Orlando Sentinel, Holtz might be changing jobs sooner rather than later. Yes Lou Holtz is rumored to be running for congress....
After earning nearly 250 wins on the college gridiron, former Notre Dame Coach Lou Holtz is eyeing another competition -- as a candidate for Congress in Central Florida.I don't know what I would do without Lou in my life. Heck, I may just have to make this a political site, and start watching CSPAN everyday. Good luck, Lou, but I hope there's a way for you to pull off both jobs.
The famed skipper and ESPN analyst met with top Republicans here last week and said he was interested in challenging first-term U.S. Rep. Suzanne Kosmas, D-New Smyrna Beach, according to four GOP officials who did not speak on-the-record because they don't know if Holtz actually will run.
Holtz could not be reached for comment. An associate said he was flying to the West Coast for a meeting. Holtz has been one of ESPN's premier college-football analysts since 2005.
