Pat Dye Bio

Dye is a former college football coach most notable for his tenure as the head coach at Auburn University from 1981 until 1992. With a career record of 153-62-5 over nineteen seasons as a head coach, Dye was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2005.

Dye's first coaching job came as an assistant at the University of Alabama in 1965, under Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant.

Dye moved into his first head coaching job at East Carolina University in 1974. Over six seasons, he achieved a record of 48-18-1. He guided the Pirates to the Southern Conference championship in 1976 and posted at least seven wins in all six seasons in Greenville. In 2006, Dye was inducted into the East Carolina Athletics Hall of Fame. 

In 1980, Dye took over as head coach for one season at the University of Wyoming. In the decade prior to his arrival the Cowboys had only one winning season (winning 35% of their games), but in Dye's first year he changed the culture into a winning program going 6-5 and paving the way for future success under coaches Al Kincaid (Dye's offensive coordinator) and Dennis Erickson.

While under the leadership of Dye, the Auburn Tigers won four Southeastern Conference Championships and Dye became only the fourth coach in SEC history to win three straight (1987-1989). He received SEC Coach of the Year honors in 1983, 1987, and 1988. Dye was also the athletic director from 1981 to 1992.

On November 19, 2005, the playing field at Jordan-Hare Stadium at Auburn was named for Dye. The dedication ceremony was held immediately before the Iron Bowl. This was especially appropriate since Dye led the Tigers to a 30-20 victory over the Tide on December 2, 1989 in the first installment of the Iron Bowl to be played at Auburn after 41 consecutive meetings at Legion Field in Birmingham.

In September 2006, Dye partnered with publisher Mascot Books to release his first children's book, War Eagle!.
