Schnellenberger held head coaching positions with the Baltimore Colts and in college for the University of Miami, University of Oklahoma, University of Louisville, and Florida Atlantic University. He won a national championship with Miami in 1983.

Schnellenberger was an assistant coach at the college and pro levels, starting his NFL coaching career with the Los Angeles Rams before joining Don Shula in Miami in 1970. He was the offensive coordinator for the Dolphins during the undefeated, Super Bowl-winning 1972 season. Schnellenberger had two stops with the Dolphins sandwiched between a short stint with the Colts as head coach that ended three games into his second season after going 4-13.

He is also recruited Joe Namath to Alabama for Bear Bryant in 1961.

Schnellenberger succeeded John Sandusky as head coach of the Baltimore Colts on Feb. 14, 1973. The Colts went 4–10–0 in his one full season but managed to upset the defending Super Bowl champion Dolphins towards the end of the 1973 season. He was fired three games into the next season.

The highlight of Schnellenberger’s career was turning a dormant Hurricanes program that averaged just more than four wins a year from 1970-78 under six different coaches into a national power, leading the school to its first national championship in 1983, five years after he arrived. I remember Miami after the Hurricanes beat the Cornhuskers in the 1984 Orange Bowl 31-30. “No one at the university wanted much to do with the football program when we got there, so we did a lot of things there were innovative and different,” Schnellenberger once said. He was an amazing Coach.

In 1979, Schnellenberger moved a bit south, leaving Shula’s staff to become head coach at the University of Miami, and changed the perception of college football in Coral Gables forever.

Schnellenberger’s first signature win at Miami came in his first season when the Hurricanes, led by quarterback Kelly, upset Penn State on the road. After going 5-6 that season, the program took off. The 1983 season started with a loss at Florida and ended with 11 consecutive wins and the hallmark victory of Schnellenberger’s career, a 31-30 victory over No. 1 Nebraska in the Orange Bowl, that vaulted UM from No. 5 entering the game to national champions.

Bobby Bowden once said Schnellenberger would tell people he patterned his program after the way Bowden built the Florida State Seminoles. But “then he beat us and won the national championship,” Bowden said. “I always thought he showed us the way.”

Schnellenberger played with Paul Hornung, played for Bear Bryant, worked for Don Shula, recruited Joe Namath and coached Bob Griese, Mark Richt, Vinny Testeverde, and Jim Kelly. He spent 47 years as a coach, a career that includes 13 years in the NFL, 17 games as a head coach of the Colts and seven seasons as a Dolphins assistant under Shula. What followed was 27 years as a college head coach, where he compiled a 158-151-3 record and is credited for building Miami, Louisville and FAU from various stages.

The Miami Hurricanes honored Schnellenberger through their football Twitter account:

"Without him, there is no Miami Football. Howard Schnellenberger leaves behind a legacy more impactful than he’ll ever know."

G. Gordon Liddy of Watergate and Nixon White House infamy died on March 30, 2021 at the Age of 90. He once claimed to sing the Horst Wessel while shaving every morning. He was quite a character. The older guys will know who he was.

RE: New Grim Reaper Death Thread
Prince Philip died overnight. He was 99 - would have been 100 in about 2 months. He and his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, celebrated 75 years of marriage last November.

And if you've ever watched The Crown, you can't help but root for the guy. Basically, he's been the First Gentleman of the UK for 69 years.

I wonder if the Queen steps down. She turns 95 later this month. Her mom (the Queen Mum) lived to be 101 so she's probably got a few years left, but maybe it's time to give someone else a turn? Plus it would be interesting to see if Prince Charles would be named King or if they would somehow pass him over for his eldest son, Prince George.
