Former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz, a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, told Newsmax that the reason Kansas City Chief kicker Harrison Butker's speech at Benedictine College, a Catholic university, is getting so much attention is because America has gotten away from its "values."

Holtz told "America Right Now" on Saturday the reason utterances about traditional values are getting so much attention today is "because of our values."

"And whatever happened to free speech?" he asked. "You know, he wasn't speaking to an abortion clinic."

Benedictine College "is a Catholic university, and he's a Catholic. And when you go to a Catholic university, you speak ... in the bottom of your heart. I can't understand why people get upset. But once again, it goes back to the freedom of speech."

Holtz coached at Notre Dame from 1986-96 and won one national championship.
