Donahue’s record with the Bruins was 151-74-8, he won three Rose Bowls during his time coaching at UCLA and is the winningest coach in PAC-12 history. There’s no doubt at all that he’s the most successful man to ever lead the program.
Terry Donahue, the winningest coach in Pacific-12 and UCLA football history, passed away tonight, at his home surrounded by family, following a two-year battle with cancer. He was 77. RIP to a coaching legend.

He had things cruising in Los Angeles when he was running the program.
I’ve known Terry Donahue for 40 years. A man of integrity, relentless energy and bled UCLA blue and gold. He helped mold so many young people and continued after retirement from UCLA. Anyone and everyone is better for having met him. A kind Valley boy from SO Notre Dame. RIP.

Now, at the age of 77, Donahue has passed onto the other side after a hell of a life and a hell of a career. He was a true legend in the world of college football and he will be missed.
