Wally Burnham Has Seen it All
AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State defensive coordinator Wally Burnham has been coaching football for more than 40 years. There isn't much Burnham hasn't seen. The native of Pell City, Ala., played for Paul "Bear" Bryant at Alabama the late 1960s. He coached under Bobby Bowden at Florida State (1985-93), winning a national championship in 1993. A former assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at South Carolina (1994-98), he was the architect of the South Florida defenses (2000-2008) that spurred the Bulls' rise to national prominence in the last decade.
