Billy's brother Frank was an original member of lay ND Board of Trustees.....and...Billy & Frank's brother-in-law was ND assistant coach Joe McArdle.......McArdle played at Fordham, Leahy was his line coach & then McArdle coached with Leahy at both Boston College & later Notre Dame....nicknamed 'Captain Bligh' by the ND football players...a tough, no nonsense assistant
