Best football coach in the state of Georgia. (Georgia State University)

The estimable, god-like, wonderful, and all-round good guy, Coach Bill Curry (the most successful coach in Georgia State football history) was asked how much longer he wants to coach collegiate football. You’ll recall, that GSU had a most successful season, posting a better record than both Tech and UGA, and nearly defeating Alabama at Alabama.


Wow… (long pause) I didn’t expect that question. It chokes me up to think about not doing it. I start to think about missing out on my grandchildren growing up. Joe Paterno is my hero and one of my best buddies. I will not be like Joe. I promised that to [wife] Carolyn and Sue Paterno. He is doing the right thing for him. I’m going to do it for as long as it makes sense to Carolyn Curry and those children that I coach.

Here’s hoping that it is several more seasons, at least.

Curry made the comments at the IMG Intercollegiate Forum, where he showed how extraordinarily well versed he is in all things related to collegiate athletics.

    There was a lot more going on at the Georgia State v. Alabama game. I don’t think that the folks at home who were watching the game realize but on the bus ride to the game the mighty Panthers raided a terrorist training camp somewhere outside of Anniston. During half time after Coach Curry gave his pep talk he drank a whole bottle of Tabasco sauce in front of his team to show how badass he is. Then on the way back to Atlanta instead of riding in the bus with the rest of his team he decided to ride a unicorn home. Oh yea NASA just named a star after him.

    “…and nearly defeating Alabama at Alabama.”

    Is 63-7 a near defeat? How about someone with an inkling of sports knowledge write an article pertaining to collegiate athletics.

    Wow, Coach Curry looks like crap in that picture! I hope his health is OK.

    I like Coach Curry, and as an alumnus of Georgia State, I wish their football team the best of luck. But, I’m also a Georgia alumnus and season ticket holder. If Georgia State starts to interfere with recruiting, I will cut someone.
