Bear Bryant's three rules of coaching hold true decades after he coached his last game


Bear Bryant may be the most legendary coach that has ever roamed a sideline.

The man won a total of 323 games - 6 of them came in one season at Maryland, 60 of those came at Kentucky, 25 came at Texas A&M, and 232 came while leading the Alabama program - while losing only only 85.

His coaching tree includes names like Howard Schnellenberger, Mike Riley, David Cutcliffe, and Bruce Arians. Suffice to say (legendary hat included), the man needs no further introduction.

Yesterday, this picture of Bryant's three rules of coaching caught my eye, and the content it contained was certainly worth passing along. Bryant's last season on a sideline may have been in 1982, but many of these hold true decades later.
