Knute Rockne, Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian, and Lou Holtz. The names of these coaches have become synonymous with one of the few teams in college football that can truly be called a "dynasty" - the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Owners of the two highest winning percentages in college football history, Rockne and Leahy won seven national championships between them.

Moose vividly remembers Leahy, the ultimate perfectionist, who stalked thesidelines barking orders in his famous Irish brogue while refusing to let the Fighting Irish lose a single game between 1946 and 1949. His fiery intensity slowly ate away at his health, eventually forcing him to retire from coaching forever at the age of forty-five. Moose speaks
