 I just want to offer you my thanks for your five years of work as our football coach. Although the atmosphere around campus hasn’t always been the kindest towards you, I, among others hopefully, appreciate the time you’ve given to this program. Thank you for having the courage to take a job that had a lot of baggage and was the center of some of the most difficult scrutiny in all of college athletics. And what made it worth it for you was not the paycheck, the perks, or the benefits. Rather, it was your love for Notre Dame and the love for the game of football. Although the University has decided to move on, there are those here at Notre Dame who would like to thank you for rising to the challenge, and we wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
