Glenn Edward "Bo" Schembechler (born April 1, 1929) was an American football coach who is best remembered as head coach at the University of Michigan from 1969-1989. During his 27 years as a head coach, Schembechler won a total of 235 games, with only Joe Paterno and Tom Osborne recording 200 victories in fewer games. A consumate "coach's coach", Schembechler combined superb technical command of the game with a fiery disposition. He preached a football fundamentalist's gospel and was a terrific motivator. As a result, Schembechler's Michigan teams were known for their physical, fundamentally sound, and fierce -- if not imaginative -- style of play. Under his watch, the Wolverines traditionally featured strong defense, dominating offensive lines, and a power-running attack. Though combative -- he was prone to sideline outbursts -- Schembechler was widely regarded as a coach of great personal integrity. He coached for more than 20 years at the major conference level without a hint of scandal.
