Web Extra: Howard Shnellenberger on Coach Bryant

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Howard Shnellenberger was a great college football coach in his own right. Schnellenberger won 158 games and was undefeated in bowl games. He’s famous for recruiting Alabama great Joe Namath while an assistant coach at Alabama under Paul “Bear” Bryant.

Earlier this year, WIAT 42 caught up with Shnellenberger to discuss Coach Bryant, what it was like to coach with him and what it was like to make it back to Tuscaloosa.

He says Bryant was “one of a kind” and had the charisma, the looks and the “know how” as the coach of the Tide.
