Jim Dents New York Times best-selling book The Junction Boys only explored one season in the life of legendary football coach Paul Bear Bryant. Now, in Allen Barras enthralling new biography, the full story of Bryants dramatic career unfolds under the bright lights of big-time college football. Coming of age during the hardscrabble years of the Great Depression, Bryant (1913-1983) transformed college football like no one before or after. Whether serving as coach at Maryland, Kentucky, Texas A&M, or finally with the Crimson Tide of Alabama, Bryant--gutsy, demanding, ruthlessly competitive--notched victory after victory and shattered virtually every coaching record. In doing, so he helped integrate college football and left behind a legacy of all-star players and coaches, including Joe Namath and George Blanda. In a narrative as thrilling as an overtime victory, The Last Coach is the unforgettable portrait not only of a coach but also of the heroic age of college football.
