Dad coached 4 Rose Bowls and 2 National Championship teams at USC, he coached at University of Illinois and Utah State and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers . He received the Bronze Star in the Korean War. Phil Krueger was tough.. the reason I couldn’t get a date in high school ( that’s my story ) .. but my friends loved “Big. Phil” and he loved them.
