Move over Bobby Knight. Former University of South Carolina football coach Lou Holtz has endorsed Donald Trump in the Republican presidential race.
The GOP frontrunner, who was endorsed last week by former Indiana University basketball coach Knight, announced Holtz’s endorsement Monday on Twitter with a video of Holtz explaining his endorsement.
“I wholeheartedly endorse Donald Trump as the next president of the United States. There are nothing but winners in Indiana,” said Holtz, who coached at Notre Dame before coming to USC in 1998.

“The main reason I’m endorsing him: I’ve played his golf course. I’ve stayed in his hotel,” Holtz said. “He does nothing but go first class in everything. He wants this country to be first class as well.”
The Indiana presidential primaries are Tuesday.
