While at the school he roomed with future actor Burt Reynolds and future college baseball coach Ron Fraser. After earning bachelor's and master's degrees from FSU he moved into college football coaching, beginning at the University of Maryland, with stops at Navy, Louisville, Indiana and Northern Illinois University.
