Overview

Joe Paterno called him ?one of the great football coaches of all time.? Lou Holtz called him ?his own man.? Tom Osborne called him ?a genuine football man.? Bo Schembechler asked to be called something else entirely, however. When asked what his player's called him, he replied, ?They call me ?Bo.? We?re on a first-name basis here.? When Bo Schembechler passed away on November 17, 2006, at the age of 77, he was being fondly remembered around America as one of college football's titans. He was Michigan football's all-time winningest coach, a seven-time Big Ten coach of the year who compiled a 194-48-5 record at Michigan from 1969-89 and a 234-65-8 lifetime record. He never had a losing season. Thirteen of his Wolverine teams won or shared the Big Ten championship, and 15 finished ranked as one of the top 10 teams in the country. In Bo, fans of Michigan football can celebrate Schembechler's amazing life through pictures and words, including numerous looks back at his tremendous career.
