Joseph Vincent Paterno is the head coach of Pennsylvania State University’s college football team, a position he has held since 1966. At age 80, Paterno will be entering his 57th season at the University as an assistant or head coach in 2007, holding the record for any football coach at any university.
Paterno holds more bowl victories than any coach in history. He also tops the list of bowl appearances with 33. Paterno is the only coach with the distinction of having won each of the current four major bowls- Rose, Orange, Fiesta, and Sugar- at least once. Overall, Paterno has led Penn State to two National Championships and five undefeated seasons. Following the 1986 championship season, Paterno was the first college coach named “Sportsman of the Year” by Sports Illustrated magazine.
