Notre Dame to unveil Rockne sculpture

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame will unveil a bronze sculpture of coaching great Knute Rockne on Friday.

The sculpture of the most successful coach in Fighting Irish history depicts Rockne in his coaching sweatshirt and baseball pants with his hands on his hips. Rockne had a coaching record of 105-12-5, an .881 winning percentage that remains the best in college football history.

His sculpture will be outside Notre Dame Stadium near a sculpture of Frank Leahy, another Irish coaching great.

Two years ago, the school added a sculpture of coach Ara Parseghian and last year it was Lou Holtz. The sculptures were created by Jerry McKenna.
