DIGGER PHELPS WANTS NOTRE DAME JOB

DIGGER PHELPS AND FRIENDS

People who lobby for sports jobs through the media rarely get those jobs. Particularly when they’re IN the media.

That hasn’t stopped ESPN college basketball analyst Digger Phelps from going after the Notre Dame Athletic Director job.

I’ve never really liked Digger Phelps. Not only is he a blathering sycophant on television, but he’s a bit of a hypocrite. Phelps once demanded we buy him free booze and cigars to go on the air with us. He then proceeded to rip college athletes for demanding “freebies.”
