Bernie Shively

Bernie Shively is best known among Kentucky fans as the university’s longtime athletic director from 1938 until he passed away in 1967.

His team finished that season with  dismal 2-8 record, and Shively hired Paul “Bear” Bryant to take over as head coach the following season. He was 65 when he passed away in December of 1967.
