He probably is the best coach the UofA had. He had so many big wins:
-beating #1 USC at the Coliseum
-beating #2 ranked UCLA
-beating beating in 1982 & 1985 to knock them out of the Rose Bowl
. Also beating undefeated and #4 ranked ASU in 1986.
-beating #6 Notre Dame in South Bend
-beating #5 ranked SMU
Larry said he enjoyed his stay at the UofA better than any other place he coached. You could not blame him for taking the USC job but at the time I was mad at the way he left. I eventually got over it and was glad to see Larry come back . He retired in Tucson and covered the UofA football team for Fox 11.
Thanks for the great memories Larry!
