Bill McCartney Chosen For The College Football Hall Of Fame
NEW YORK (AP/CBS4) – Former CU Buffaloes coach Bill McCartney was among those selected Tuesday for the College Football Hall of Fame.
McCartney helped turn the Buffaloes football team from a cellar dwellar to a national title contender in the 1990s.
He is part of a class of one other coach and 12 players chosen by the National Football Foundation and revealed Tuesday.
Wayne Hardin, who led Navy and Temple, was the other coach selected. He coached Joe Bellino and Roger Staubach to the Heisman Trophy at Navy in the 1960s, and then went on to become the most successful coach in Temple history.
Heisman Trophy winners Danny Wuerffel of Florida and Ron Dayne of Wisconsin, along with two-time national champion Tommie Frazier of Nebraska, were among the players selected.
The rest of the players to be inducted in December are: Miami Heisman winner Vinny Testaverde, whose selection was announced Monday; Ted Brown of North Carolina State; Tedy Bruschi of Arizona; Jerry Gray of Texas; Steve Meilinger of Kentucky; Orlando Pace of Ohio State; Rod Shoate of Oklahoma; Percy Snow of Michigan State; and Don Trull of Baylor.
