Biography

In sports, in business and in life, an understanding of what it takes to be a top performer is crucial for success. As an NFL Super Bowl Champion, an elite college head football coach and an ESPN analyst, Bill Curry will share with you his understanding of what it takes to accomplish your goals.

After graduation from College Park High School, Bill received a football scholarship to Georgia Tech, where he lettered for three seasons at center for Coach Bobby Dodd. In 1964, he was drafted by the Green Bay Packers, playing for legendary coach Vince Lombardi.

Bill Curry was an integral part of the team that won the 1965 NFL Championship and Super Bowl I in 1966. He was traded to the Baltimore Colts in 1967 where he played for Hall of Fame Coach, Don Shula. Under Shula, Curry played in Super Bowls III and V and was named to the All-Pro Team in 1971 and 1972. After playing briefly with the Houston Oilers and the Los Angeles Rams, Curry's ten-year NFL career ended in 1975 when a knee injury forced him to retire.

Mr. Curry began his coaching career at Georgia Tech as an assistant coach. After a three-year stint as Offensive Line Coach with the Green Bay Packers, under Coach Bart Starr, he returned to Georgia Tech in 1980 as Head Coach. While at Georgia Tech, Curry led his team to an All-American Bowl victory and was named the "ACC Coach of the Year" in 1985. In 1987, Curry agreed to serve as Head Coach at the University of Alabama.

In his three seasons coaching the Crimson Tide, he posted a record of 26-10, including one SEC Championship and three bowl appearances. His 1989 squad shared the Southeastern Conference title, and Coach Curry received the Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year Award.

Bill Curry was further honored when the Associated Press named him as the 1990 "SEC Coach of the Year."
