FAU to Name "Howard Schnellenberger Field"

We learned this week that the football field at Florida Atlantic University will soon bear the name of the Owl's first head coach. 

There will be a ceremony on September 13th before FAU's home opener against Tulsa, renaming it "Howard Schnellenberger Field", as a tribute to the man who fought to get the school a football stadium.

Coach Schnellenberger has written a book titled "Passing the Torch", with the foreword written by his mentor Don Shula. 

He will be signing copies of the book on Friday, August 29, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Florida Atlantic University bookstore on the south end of the Breezeway in Traditions Plaza.

Schnellenberger guided the University of Miami to a national championship in 1983, and was previously an assistant coach with the Miami Dolphins 1972 Perfect Season.
