Personal life

Childhood

Bud Grant was born on May 20, 1927 in Superior, Wisconsin to Harry Peter Sr. and Bernice Grant.[5] His mother called him "Buddy Boy", which later became "Bud".[5] As a child, Grant was diagnosed with poliomyelitis and a doctor suggested becoming active in sports[6] to strengthen his weakened leg muscles over time. He started with baseball then added basketball and football as he got older.[5] Due to a lack of organized school teams, he arranged to have football games between neighborhoods and contacted kids from other schools to participate.[5] During the weekends, he would spend time outdoors alone hunting rabbits.[5] In his late teens and college years, he played organized baseball in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Professional basketball

After leaving the University of Minnesota, Grant was selected in both the NFL and NBA Draft. He was selected in the first round (fourteenth overall) of the 1950 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles[12] and fourth round (forty-second overall) selection of the Minneapolis Lakers in the 1950 NBA Draft.[13] He played thirty-five games during the 1949-50 NBA season[14] and signed with the Lakers for a second season, the 1950-51 NBA season. He chose to continue his basketball career and play for the Lakers because they were local and because he was offered a raise to stay for the season.[5] Grant's friend, Sid Hartman, was the Laker's general manager, which may have influenced his decision to remain with the team.[7] He averaged 2.6 points per game in his two seasons as a reserve with the Lakers and was a member of the 1950 championship team.[15] The NFL Draft (officially the NFL Annual Player Selection Meeting[1]) is an annual sports draft in which National Football League (NFL) teams take turns, through seven rounds[2], selecting amateur college American football players and other first-time eligible players. ...

Professional football

After two seasons in the NBA, Grant decided to end his professional basketball career.[5] He contacted the Philadelphia Eagles of the NFL[5] and agreed to play for the team during the 1951 NFL season.[7] In his first season with the Eagles, Grant played as a defensive end and led the team in sacks (an unofficial statistic at the time).[5][7] He switched to offense as a wide receiver for his second season with the club and ranked second in the NFL for receiving yardage, with 997 yards on fifty-six catches, including seven touchdowns.[7][16] The 1951 NFL season was the 32nd regular season of the National Football League. ...

Coaching career

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Blue Bombers management decided that they needed a new coach prior to the 1957 season.[7] On January 30, 1956, Grant accepted the Blue Bombers head coaching position after impressing management with his ability to make adjustments on offense and defense as a player.[5] Club president, J.T. Russell, thought that Grant could coach even though nobody else did.[17] Grant would remain the head coach of the Blue Bombers until 1966. During his ten seasons as head coach in Winnipeg, he led the team to six Grey Cup appearances, winning the championship four times in 1958, 1959, 1961, and 1962.[19] He finished his Blue Bombers coaching career with a regular season record of 105 wins, 53 loses, and two ties and an overall record of 122 wins, 66 loses, and 3 ties.[17] Grant was the CFL Coach of the Year in 1965.[19] Grant took on additional responsibilities as a club manager between 1964 and 1966.[17] Max Winter, the Minnesota Vikings founder, contacted Grant in 1961 and asked him to coach the new NFL expansion team.[5] Grant declined the offer and remained in Winnipeg until 1967 when Winter and General Manager Jim Finks were able to successfully lure Grant to Minnesota on a second attempt.[5] // Canadian Football News in 1957 The Canadian Football Council (CFC) allowed interference to be legal up to third 5-yard stripe by eligible blockers. ... is the 30th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Minnesota Vikings

Grant continued his coaching success in the NFL as he took over from original coach, Norm Van Brocklin.[7] Over his tenure as Vikings head coach, Grant was known for instilling discipline in his teams and displaying a lack of emotion during games.[5] He believed that football is a game of controlled emotion and teams wouldn't follow the coach's lead if he were to panic or lose his poise during the course of a game.[2] He required his team to stand at attention in a straight line during the entire national anthem played before the game and even had national anthem practice.[5] Grant required outdoor practice during the winter to get players used to the cold weather[7] and would not allow heaters on the sidelines during games.[5] Norman Mack Norm Van Brocklin (March 15, 1926 – May 2, 1983), also known as The Dutchman, was an American football player and coach. ...

The Vikings lost in Super Bowl IV to the American Football League champion Kansas City Chiefs. During the 1970s, the Vikings would appear in three more Super Bowls (VIII, IX, and XI) under Grant and lose each one[7], but was the first coach to lead a team to four Super Bowls. He retired after the 1983 NFL season and was succeeded by Les Steckel, who led the team through a three win, thirteen loss record the following season.[7] Steckel was fired as head coach after the 1984 season and Grant returned as coach for the Vikings in 1985.[7] At the conclusion of the 1985 season, Grant retired for a second time and was succeeded by Jerry Burns.[7] Grant retired as the eighth most winning coach in NFL history with an overall record of 161 wins, 99 losses, and 5 ties.[5] During his tenure with the Vikings, he lead the Vikings to four Super Bowls, eleven division titles, one NFL Championship, and three Conference Championships.[5] The National Football League (NFL) playoffs is a single-elimination tournament held at the end of the 16-game regular season to determine the NFL champion. ...
