Notre Dame DB coach Todd Lyght reveals social media secret
More and more, recruiting means tweeting.
And to do that, Notre Dame first-year defensive backs coach Todd Lyght employs a little help.
"My son Logan is really good at keeping me in check when it comes to internet and social media outlets," Lyght joked in a story on MLive.com. "I'm on Twitter, but I've never been on Facebook. My son told me that I'm too old for Snapchat and Instagram, so I'm only on Twitter."
Of course, Lyght — a two-time All-American cornerback at Notre Dame from 1987 to 1990 — is more than just a recruiter, or a social media apprentice. First and foremost, he's a coach. And while attending the 62nd annual Notre Dame Club of Kalamazoo Golf Outing at Kalamazoo Country Club on Monday, the national champion and Super Bowl champion detailed the mentality he hopes to instill in South Bend.
"I want to bring toughness and football IQ back to the program," Lyght said. "The thing about University of Notre Dame football players is that we want smart and tough guys and I think we've done a really good job of recruiting the right kind of guys to come into the program and help them develop on and off the field and excel in every aspect of their life."
