Sept. 27, 2010 is debuting another of its new interactive features for the 2010-11 season, with its weekly Fighting Irish Fan Chats. Each Wednesday afternoon, will sit down for a live chat session with student-athletes, coaches and administrators making news in the world of Fighting Irish athletics. Fans are invited to join in and offer questions or comments for our guests, and if you can’t join us live, each chat will be archived so you can return to at your convenience and read what your favorite Notre Dame athletic personalities have to say on a variety of topics.

Our fifth Fighting Irish Fan Chat will take place from 1:00-2:30 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, Sept. 29, as Notre Dame women’s golf coach Susan Holt, men’s cross country coach Joe Piane and defensive backs Jamoris Slaughter and Robert Blanton will join us, with Slaughter and Blanton opening the chat at 1:00 p.m. (ET).
