Where Are They Now? today's episode: gerry faust

For whatever reason, I was wondering today whatever happened to Gerry Faust, the successful Catholic high school coach who got the biggest promotion in college sports history--straight from high school to the head coaching job at Notre Dame, where he promptly floundered (and went on to coach the Akron Zips, where I lost track of him). I found an entry for a Gerry Faust on a promotional speaker site, where this is the puzzling entry they have for him:
