Perhaps no individual is as responsible for advancing the cause of Baylor football as legendary head coach Grant Teaff.
Teaff was hired to coach Baylor's program in 1972 when many people said the Bears should drop out of Division I. When the final gun sounded on the 1992 John Hancock Bowl - Teaff's last game as a head coach - he had accomplished one of the most distinguished coaching careers in history.
Teaff moved into his position as the "coaches' coach" after his highly successful 22-year stint as the head coach of the Bears. What Teaff has done with the AFCA has mirrored his accomplishments at Baylor.
