Pod of Gold: Jerome Bettis talks Dante Moore, NFL Draft and earning his Notre Dame degree
Bettis, a native of Detroit, went on to win the NFC Offensive Rookie of the Year award for the Los Angeles Rams, rush for 13,662 yards (eighth all-time in the NFL) and win a Super Bowl with the Pittsburgh Steelers in his final season in 2005. In 2015 he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Nearly 30 years since leaving Notre Dame, Bettis — affectionally nicknamed "The Bus" for being one of the greatest NFL power runners of all time — is back on campus to finish his business degree. He's also been ever present around the Irish football program and first-year head coach Marcus Freeman.
