Barry Switzer became the head coach at The University of Oklahoma in 1973 and began one of the most successful coaching stints in college history. During the next sixteen years, he compiled an overall record of 157-29-4, including 12 Big Eight Conference Championships and three National Championships. His overall record ranks behind only Knute Rockne, Frank Lahey and George Woodruff in career college football winning percentage.

In 1994, Switzer was named head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. One year later, he led the Cowboys to the Super Bowl title. Switzer is one of only two coaches who have won National Championships in both college and the NFL.

Switzer began his college career at the University of Arkansas, where he played center and linebacker for the Razorbacks and was captain of the 1959 team that won the Southwestern Conference and Gator Bowl. He returned to The University of Arkansas as a coach in 1961 after his military service. In 1966 he became Offensive Line Coach under Jim MacKenzie at The University of Oklahoma.

Switzer has been honored with numerous awards. He was named coach of the year by the Walter Camp Foundation, The Big Eight Conference, NCAA, The Washington Pigskin Club, The Sporting News, Playboy, Associated Press and United Press International. He has previously been inducted in the Oklahoma and Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame.

He is also a best-selling author, successful businessman and generous philanthropist. Switzer is the founding organizer of the Swing for Sight Golf Tournaments, which have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Society for the Prevention of Blindness. For the past thirty years, Switzer has served as honorary head coach of the Oklahoma Special Olympics. Recently, an athletic facility at The University of Oklahoma was named in his honor. In 2001 he was inducted into the National College Football Hall of Fame.
