2007: College Football Hall of Fame coach Eddie Robinson, who won 408 games over his 57 years as head coach at Grambling State University, the most ever for any college football coach at the time of his 1997 retirement, dies of Alzheimer's disease at the age of 88 in Ruston, Louisiana. Robinson, who coached at Grambling, a historically black university in Louisiana, from 1941 to 1997, was surpassed in coaching victories by St. John's University coach John Gagliardi in 2003 and Penn State coach Joe Paterno in 2011 and is now ranked third overall in college football wins.
