Barry Switzer Biography
Barry Switzer was born October 5, 1937 and is a former football coach, in the college and professional ranks, between 1962 and 1997. He has one of the highest winning percentages of any college football coach in history, and is one of only two head coaches to win both a college football national championship and a Super Bowl (the other being his college teammate and rival head coach Jimmy Johnson.)
Switzer became head coach at Oklahoma in 1973, leading the team to undefeated seasons that year and the next. Oklahoma won national championships in 1974, 1975 and 1985 under Switzer's leadership. The team won or shared in the Big 8 championship every year from 1973 to 1980. During his sixteen years as head coach at Oklahoma, his teams won eight of the thirteen post-season bowl games they played in, and 54 of his players were selected as All-Americans. In 1978 Billy Sims won the Heisman Trophy. Switzer resigned as head coach in 1989 after Oklahoma was placed on probation by the NCAA. His overall record of 157-29-4 gives him the fourth-best all-time winning percentage (.837). Switzer succeeded in getting the better of several famous contemporaries, including a 12-5 mark against Tom Osborne, 0-2 against Jimmy Johnson, 2-0 against Bobby Bowden and 1-0 against Joe Paterno and Woody Hayes. Along with Bennie Owen, Bud Wilkinson and Bob Stoops, he is one of four coaches to win over 100 games at the University of Oklahoma. No other college football program has more than 3 coaches to accomplish such a feat.
