NORFOLK, Va., Dec. 20, 2019—The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) is again elated to document the outstanding legacy of head football coaches in an effort to tell the stories of not only the legends of college football, but the stories of tremendous men of honor and integrity as well – this week shining the spotlight on someone many consider the best college football coach to ever roam the sidelines.
As college football celebrates its 150th year, the MEAC is proud to document and showcase some of these football coaching legends.

HBCUs around the country are known for producing some of the best talent to come through the college ranks and into the National Football League (NFL). What many may not know is the fact that these talented student-athletes were led by legendary coaches who not only changed their lives, but they have helped to change the landscape of college football.
These video trailers, and the footage taken over the past year, will lead into 30- to 45-minute documentaries on each legendary coach.
