Paul William "Bear" Bryant (September 11, 1913 – January 26, 1983)
was an American college football player and coach. He was best known
as the longtime head coach of the University of Alabama football team.
During his 25-year tenure as Alabama's head coach, he amassed six national
championships and thirteen conference championships. Upon his retirement in 1982,
he held the record for most wins as head coach in collegiate football history with 323 wins. At the University of Alabama, the Paul W. Bryant Museum, Paul W. Bryant Hall, Paul W. Bryant Drive, and Bryant–Denny Stadium are all named in his honor. He was also known for his trademark black and white plaid or gingham hat, deep voice, casually leaning up against the goal post during
pre-game warmups, and frequently holding his rolled-up game plan while on the
sidelines while smoking a cigarette.
Before arriving at Alabama, Bryant was head football coach at the
University of Maryland, the University of Kentucky, and Texas A&M University.
Of the schools he coached, Maryland is the only one not currently a member of the Southeastern Conference
