40 Year Decision: One of Joe Moore's Boys


40 Year Decision: One of Joe Moore's Boys

Shaped by a set of legendary ND coaches, Mike Rosenthal is teaching a new generation of athletes.

Mike Rosenthal was a stalwart at left tackle for the Irish. Having honed his craft  just a few miles from the Notre Dame campus at perennial Indiana football power Penn High School, Rosenthal became the rare Jewish player at America's most iconic Catholic university. A student of legendary line coach, Joe Moore, Rosenthal carried the discipline instilled in him into a successful NFL career. 

Now married to a fellow Domer athlete (Lindsay [Treadwell] Rosenthal, '99, a monogram winner for volleyball) and father of four active children, Mike is the head football coach and athletic director at Stephen F. Austin High School in Austin, Texas. He shared his perspectives on the 40 Year Decision in a recent conversation.
