Notre Dame all-time great Justin Tuck visits with Fighting Irish Wire

Few in the history of Notre Dame football have been as dominant defensively as former defensive end Justin Tuck.

Before his NFL career that lasted more than a decade and resulted in a pair of Super Bowl victories, Tuck set a then-Notre Dame record by recording 24.5 sacks in blue in gold.  That record has since been passed by Isaiah Foskey but it’s worth noting that Tuck accomplished his feat in just three seasons.

Tuck was working with DIRECTV over the weekend as the company has become the presenting sponsor of the Jeweled Shillelagh Rivalry between Notre Dame and USC for 2023 and 2024.  Before the game he was in attendance for this past weekend, Tuck was kind enough to spend a few minutes with Fighting Irish Wire.

Take a listen to the interview below as Tuck discusses his must-stops whenever he returns to campus, why he chose Notre Dame over his pick of SEC programs, his thoughts/advice for Marcus Freeman, and his legend as a basketball player on Notre Dame’s campus.

And finally, we discuss his two Super Bowl victories as a player and if he thinks Eli Manning should have won both game MVP’s.  Check it out below and hit subscribe as we plan to bring more interviews and content to you in podcast form soon!
