COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Lou
Holtz strode to the freshly painted 50-
yard line, back in the game and bring-
ing his winner's legacy to a South
Carolina team coming off its worst
season in more than a century.
As the former Notre Dame coach
entered Williams Brice Stadium on
Friday, about 5,000 Gamecock fans
cheered and cheered - giving him 33
ovations in all.
"Our goal is to win the national
championship," Holtz said, drawing
even louder yells from the crowd as
the Gamecocks' mascot, Cocky,
roamed the stands, and a sign said
"Out w/the old, in w/the Lou."
Holtz, who has been a football ana-
lyst for CBS after 27 seasons as coach
and one national championship for the
Irish, takes over a Southeastern
Conference program that went 1-10
this year, its worst season in 106 years.
Coach Brad Scott was fired Nov. 23,
but on Friday was named an assistant
at archrival Clemson.
"When I left the University of Notre
Dame, I honestly felt I would never
coach again," Holtz said. "My heart is
now here at the University of South
Carolina. My effort and dedication is,
to you."
It was his family who convinced
him he should return to lead his sixth
team.
"A lot of people said, 'You can't win
at South Carolina and you're making a
big mistake if you go there,' and
they're absolutely right, I can't win
here. But our team can and we plan on
doing it," Holtz said.
Holtz promised the fans that "I'm
here because I want to be here."
The deal to bring Holtz to South
Carolina was to have been announced
Thursday night, but negotiations with
the 61-year-old coach dragged on
longer than expected. They went until
3:30 a.m. Friday. broke off, then
resumed at 7:30 a.m., said an athletic
department source who provided
details only on condition of anonymi-
ty.
At 10 a.m., Holtz wondered if he
would ever coach again' But 45 min-
utes later, he had completed the five-
year, $600,000-a-year deal.
"I thought if I didn't take this job, I

was never going to look at another
one,' he said.
Despite leaving Notre Dame after!
1 1 seasons in 1996, Holtz never lost
the desire to coach. With his wife,
Beth, improving from her battle with
throat cancer, Holtz said he felt ready
to stroll the sidelines again.
School trustee Mike Mungo was a
neighbor when H-oltz was an assistant
at South Carolina in 1966-67, and he"
ran into Holtz mgain this October Ain
New York.
"I came back here and told people
that he would be a wonderful answer-
to our problems;' Mungo said.
Holtz will be paid a SI150,000 base
salary, but boadcast revenues,;
endorsements other payments will
boost that to about $600,000 annually,
the school said. !". "
"From the very beginning of this
search, Lou Holtz was the coach, we
identified who hould be able to lead-
the Carolina program to the next '
level," athletic director Mike McGe
said.
Holtz said any delays in the negoti-
ations were the result of differences in
interpretations.
"It's not easy to put everything
together," Holtz 'said. "There wasn't
any problem or inidecision."
Sources had said the snag was at-
least in part over whether Skip Holtz-'
the coach at Connecticut, would eveni
tually succeed his father as head coach,
at South Carolina. The source who
spoke with The Associated Press said..
Skip Holtz was given no guarantees;
but would get "fair consideration" if
his father leaves. +
Lou Holtz said there was no cote-
tractual agreement covering his son.
But Holtz isn't planning on leaving
soon. He said that when he looked at '
South Carolina'si two U.S. senators,'-,
95-year-old Strom Thurmond and '76-
year-old Ernest "Fritz" Hollings, he
realized, "I've got a long tenure ahead "
of me.:'
Holtz was 100-30-2 at Notre Damie.
He also has coached William & Mary, -
North Carolina State, Arkansas and.
Minnesota, where he also took over a
1-10 team after the 1983 season. He
spent one season with the NFL's New--
York Jlets. 4J
