|Penn State’s NCAA Penalties Means Grambling Football’s Eddie Robinson Is Now the Winningest Coach In NCAA History|

Monday, Grambling football’s ex-coach Eddie Robinson again became the winningest football coach in Division I history after former Penn State coach Joe Paterno had 111 wins vacated by NCAA sanctions.
“He was able to say to those men that you are somebody, and you are attending Grambling, and Grambling is the winning spirit of football and athletics.”
Doug Williams, (SEEN ABOVE ON RIGHT) the current Grambling coach and former quarterback under Robinson, says Robinson can’t be defined by any number of wins.
“Today doesn’t change any player’s opinion of Coach Rob,” Williams said. “Players like Franco Harris that played for (Joe Paterno) held him in high esteem, and players that played for (Robinson) feel the same way.
“I don’t think (Robinson) would be happy today.”
Last week, Cynthia Breedlove, an attorney for the city of Grambling, petitioned to the NCAA to vacate some of Paterno’s wins in hopes of getting Robinson restored as the record holder. She did so with the back of Grambling Mayor Edward Jones.
The mayor said the petition was never meant to alter the NCAA process, just to voice the city’s position.
Robinson died in 1997 at age 88. The following year, the Football Writers Association of America named its coach of the year award in Robinson’s honor. The winner of the initial Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year trophy? YEP! Joe Paterno. (NBC Sports)
