2021 has been a horrible year for both professional and collegiate sports. It seems as if there have been more deaths this year during the off-season than ever before.

Unfortunately, tragedy most recently struck UCLA as their most winning coach of the PAC-10 conference and UCLA, Terry Donahue, passed away at the age of 77 at his home on Sunday. Aside from his work in college football, Donahue was also at one point the General Manager for the San Francisco 49ers.

In other NCAA football news, Alabama head coach Nick Saban recently commented on his contract extension with the university that will keep him as the head coach of Alabama for eight more years.

“Terry and I are pleased and happy to sign another contract extension that will keep us in Tuscaloosa through the end of our career,” Saban said in a release. “Our family calls Tuscaloosa and the state of Alabama home, it’s a place where our roots now run deep. This agreement gives us the chance to continue to impact the lives of the young men and their families who choose to play football and get an education at Alabama. We want to thank the Board of Trustees, Chancellor St. John, President Bell, Director of Athletics Greg Byrne, our athletics administration, the football staff and the whole University community for their support.”
