Personal Foul

Personal Foul
Richard Lieberman

Academy Chicago


Personal Foul by Richard Lieberman will have students reading on the way to their classes and in their cars in the Zachary Lot.
Lieberman tells the story of his client, Joe Moore, former offensive line coach for nine years at Notre Dame, who was fired for age discrimination by head coach Bob Davie, a former defensive coordinator at Texas A&M.
This book covers the case of Joe Moore vs. The University of Notre Dame and uncovers many secrets within the athletic department discovered during the trial, including the abuses between coaches and players.
Lieberman provides the readers with expert legal tactics and gives thorough backgrounds of all persons in the book.
Blue and Gold Illustrated, the newspaper covering Notre Dame football, also gave Personal Foul rave reviews and wrote: “Lieberman … does an impressive job of … standing up to and defeating the bully that is Notre Dame …”
This book does not only appeal to football fans. Readers who know nothing about the sport can get a clear picture of the politics within the Notre Dame athletic department.
Perhaps what makes this book even more gripping is the fact that it is a true story.
Lieberman describes the good – Joe Moore and Lieberman’s team of lawyers, and the bad – Michael Wadsworth and Father Beauchamp, former executive vice president of the University of Notre Dame, who let this and several other occurrences pass right under their noses. And of course, Lieberman covers the ugly – Davie, who in the past allegedly had convinced one of his graduate assistants at Tulane to spy on Mississippi State in the early eighties and “bilking the [University of Arizona] out of over $13,000 by filing phony airline receipts fo recruiting trips.”
This book has more dirt than an anthill, which makes for a great read for this “enquiring-minds-want-to-know society.” Touchdown for Lieberman. (Grade: A)
