Biographies of Three Football Coaching Legends

The current season marks significant anniversaries for both professional and collegiate football. The National Football League celebrates its 100th anniversary, having grown from club teams in communities such as Canton, Ohio, and Decatur, Illinois, to a billion-dollar industry that now plays regular season games in London, England.
