When Grant Teaff stepped down as head football coach at Baylor University at the end of the 1992 season, he ranked second in Southwest Conference history in seasons (21) and games (239) coached at one school. His 128 victories were fifth all-time, proof of his ability to sustain a winning program at a smaller private university. Teaff guided the Bears to two SWC titles and eight bowl games including the two Cotton Bowl appearances (1975, 1981). The celebrated "Miracle on the Brazos" in 1974 was the Bear's first conference title in 50 years. Teaff earlier had served as head coach at McMurry and Angelo State. The former Snyder High School and McMurry athlete chaired for 11 years the ethics committee of the American Football Coaches Association. He resigned as athletic director at Baylor to become executive director of the 6,500-member American Football Coaches Association in 1994. Teaff was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1995.
