Digger Phelps is "coaching the streets"


Irish Basketball legend Digger Phelps was on campus Wednesday to talk coaching.  He launched his book, "Coaching the Streets," with a dedication and signing at Notre Dame's bookstore.

Coach said he wrote the book after Father Hesburgh encouraged him to do more than just coach basketball.  Phelps stressed the importance of surrounding kids with school and after school programs to get them off the streets.  It's all about making a difference in young people's lives.  "I think it's giving kids hope, giving kids a second chance so they can go and win in the game of life," said Phelps.

We also asked Coach how he was feeling after beating cancer for a second time this past year.  He said he's feeling good at 2-and-0 and quote- "doesn't want another game."
