Notre Dame will be having two events in the next couple of months that are open to the public – the first of which is the Annual Coaches Clinic. This year, they are are allowing anyone, and not just high school coaches to attend. Here’s some info from a press release they sent out about the event.
On Friday, April 4, participating coaches and fans will have an opportunity to attend the FCA luncheon as well as a hosted dinner and social hour on Friday evening. Those involved in the weekend’s activities will have a tremendous experience – including interactive presentations from Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis, the Irish coaching staff as well as visiting coaches.
Chalk-talk sessions will provide attendees with an excellent opportunity to become familiar with various coaching techniques and a chance to know the coaches and other visitors. In addition to various presentations, participants will get an exclusive look at the ’08 Fighting Irish team practice as well as tour the Notre Dame Stadium locker room and peruse items from local exhibitors.
Indianapolis Colts president Bill Polian has been named as a guest speaker at the Coaches Clinic and will address those in attendance on Saturday morning, April 5. Polian was hired by the Colts on Dec. 22, 1997, and has been a driving force behind the Colts success over the last decade as he drafted Peyton Manning, Edgerrin James, Reggie Wayne, Dwight Freeney, Bob Sanders and Joseph Addai, to name a few. Since 1999, no team has more regular-season wins than the Colts and they have made the playoffs in eight of the past nine seasons. The 2006 Colts capped off a great season by defeating the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI to claim the fourth championship in franchise history.
