Brian Boulac, former Notre Dame athletics administrator, coach and student-athlete passed away this week at the age of 79. 

Boulac retired in 2009 after 40 years with Notre Dame Athletics. He played tight end on the Notre Dame football team from 1959-62 and earned his bachelor’s (’63) and master’s (’65) degrees, returning to campus to coach football, later becoming the first softball coach in Notre Dame history and also serving within the athletic administration.

“In his many roles over the years, Brian taught us what it means to Be Irish,” said University Vice President and James E. Rohr Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick. “His commitment to excellence on the field as a student-athlete and coach, his dedication to trailblazing the varsity softball program and his legacy of service to the athletics community at large will long be remembered, and he will be greatly missed.”

From the time he enrolled as a freshman at Notre Dame in ’59 through the 2008 season, Boulac saw (or played in) every Notre Dame home football game for 50 consecutive seasons (282 games). He earned a Monogram as a sophomore player at Notre Dame in 1960.
