Passion remains, so Holtz will return to Gamecocks
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Lou Holtz intends to return as South Carolina's football coach next year, blaming himself for his team's poor play following a strong start to the season.
The 65-year-old coach has three years left on his contract and is looking toward a 31st season. He has been at South Carolina four seasons.
"I definitely plan on being back here next year,'' Holtz said Monday. "I want to tell you I'm embarrassed by what's happened the last couple of weeks.''
