Eddie Robinson, 1919-2007.

The former career wins leader from Grambling died late Tuesday from complications from Alzheimer's.

Fans SMQ's age only knew Robinson as a bleary-eyed old, sick man, far from the memory his singularly dedicated life deserves. Robinson took over the Louisiana Negro Normal and Industrial Institute in 1941 and was 408-165-15 in 57 years. He coached well over 1,000 players and sent more than 200 to the NFL.

Condolences to Grambling and the Robinson family.
