Robinson re-took the winningest record after the NCAA ruled on sanctions against Penn State and former coach Joe Paterno. Penn State and coach Paterno had to vacate wins from 1998 to 2011, in addition to other sanctions.

Paterno “broke” Robinson’s record with 409 wins on October 29th, 2011 against Illinois. That win and 110 other wins were stripped from Paterno’s wins record.

Robinson was the Grambling State head coach for more than 50-years. He passed away in 2007, but his legacy is felt throughout football to this day.

He has the Eddie Robinson Award, which honors the outstanding head coach in the Football Championship Subdivision. Last year was its 25th anniversary.
