    For a winning coach with INTEGRITY, it's hard to beat Joe Paterno or the late Eddie Robinson in football.

    "Friendliness" doesn't always equate to job security, if there aren't enough VICTORIES to go with it.

    It is hard to find friendly coaches in an often cutthroat world. Good for him to win it.:thumbsup:

    He used to coach at Tennessee. Fulmer was a superbly nice coach as well. He didn't care if you were the biggest donor in the school or the guy who drives the garbage truck next to the stadium, he treated you pretty much the same. Stories of this are legendary and legion around Knoxville.
