Bud Wilkinson, Cardinals
One of the most legendary coaches in college football history, between 1947-1963, he led the Oklahoma Sooners to a 47-game winning streak (still a college record) and three national championships. In 1978, he came out of retirement to take the head coaching job for the St. Louis Cardinals. It was an ill-fated move. He went 9-20 in parts of two seasons, quarreled with the front office, and quit with three games remaining in the 1979 season.—Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo)
