"Football offers you the greatest opportunity for a coach to succeed in any sport. Now, Joe Paterno's old (79). I'm just 77! I'm looking out on this audience and seeing many people who haven't lived their lives. They have so much ahead of them, and, just as with all six of my football jobs in four different states, I know that you have to have faith/belief - I'm not talking about Fate. I have been very fortunate in my profession, and this is just a wonderful award. I am truly honored."
