Murray Warmath, the football coach who led the Minnesota Gophers to a national championship and back-to-back Rose Bowls, has died at age 98.
As Joel Maturi conducted a lengthy search for the next face of the Minnesota football program, he had to swallow his pride and give an honest assessment of what has transpired at the school over the last 40 years.
"He persevered through losing seasons and harsh criticism to coach his team to a national championship and a Rose Bowl victory, but he should perhaps be best remembered for his efforts to recruit outstanding African-American student-athletes in the 1950s and `60s, which helped to break down the color barrier at universities across the country," Bruininks said.
"Murray Warmath is one of the great coaches and leaders in the history of Gopher sports, and indeed, intercollegiate athletics," Minnesota President Robert Bruininks said Thursday in a statement.
