Legendary college football coach
at the University of Alabama
His first major-college coaching experience was at University of Kentucky, but basketball coach Adolph Rupp pretty much ran him off. Kentucky's loss was Bama's gain, as Bryant led the Crimson Tide to an insane number of winning seasons, SEC championships, and Sugar Bowls. Demigod in Alabama, except for Auburn fans who consider him and anything else Tide-related demon spawn.
