Donald Trump just locked down two more huge endorsements ahead of Tuesday’s Indiana primary.

Former Notre Dame and Purdue men’s basketball coaches Digger Phelps and Gene Keady both introduced the Republican front-runner before a Monday campaign rally in South Bend.

“Coaches know how to get things done. Donald Trump is one of the great coaches of this country,” Phelps told the crowd. “And we’re all tired of what’s not gotten done for us the last eight years in this country and trust me with this: he is the man who will make America great again.”

“Indiana and Notre Dame and Perdue used to fight hard against each other,” added Keady. “But we all now want to be united and be under the same type of safe situation in the United States and Mr. Trump is the answer to that.”

Phelps and Keady join former Indiana basketball coach Bobby Knight and Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz in backing the real estate mogul. (RELATED: Trump Thanks “Bobby Night” On Twitter)

Trump touted Knight’s support at several campaign stops over the past week, while Holtz claimed Monday that Trump will make America “first-class” like his hotels and golf courses. (RELATED: Lou Holtz Endorses Trump For President)
