Photos: Brian Kelly, Mike Brey Thank Dick Vitale For Massive Donation To Notre Dame

Longtime ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale made an extremely generous $1 million donation to the University of Notre Dame Thursday afternoon to provide financial aid to deserving students in need of help. 

Despite what people may think after such a generous donation, Vitale did not attend college at Notre Dame. He graduated from Seton Hall University. But both of his daughters went to Notre Dame and he has since built a great appreciation for the university, as was evident Thursday morning. 

So both Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly and head basketball coach Mike Brey wanted to personally thank Vitale for his generosity.

It's always good to see people giving back to universities they have grown to love.
