Default Bo Schembechler Passed Away - Famed University of Michigan Football Coach

On Friday, November 17, 2006, Glenn E. (Bo) Schembechler,
the famed long time coach of the University of Michigan football
team passed away.

One of the true legends in the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry died Friday.
Bo Schembechler is a big reason Saturday's game became The Game.
He wasn't planning on attending, but his presence will be felt on and
off the field.

As the winningest head coach in Michigan football history, Schembechler's teams won or tied an impressive 13 Big Ten championships during his 21 year tenure. Under Schembechler's guidance, Michigan's 96-10-3 regular season record through the decade of the 1970s was the nation's best. He guided 17 teams to post-season bowl games (Ten Rose Bowls) and another 17 to top ten finishes in the final wire service polls (AP and/or UPI).

In his 27 years of coaching, Schembechler's teams never had a losing season. Upon stepping down after the 1989 season, Bo retired as the winningest active coach in the nation (234-65-8) and fifth on the all-time list, only behind coaching legends Paul 'Bear' Bryant, Amos Alonzo Stagg, Glen 'Pop' Warner, and Woody Hayes. In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Schembechler served as Michigan's Director of Athletics between 1988-1990.

After earning his diploma from Miami (Ohio) University in 1951, Schembechler received his master's degree from Ohio State in 1952 while serving as a graduate assistant coach. He continued his coaching career with brief stints as an assistant at Presbyterian College (1954), Bowling Green (1955) and Northwestern (1958) before spending five seasons as an assistant at Ohio State. in 1963, Schembechler was named head coach at Miam. of Ohio, a position he held until taking over the Michigan program prior to the 1969 campaign.
