Ray Graves

Ray Graves served as an assistant coach at Tennessee and Georgia Tech for 15 years before taking the head coaching job at the University of Florida in 1960. He coached the Gators for 10 seasons from 1960-1969, leading the Gators to nine winning seasons in that time. His teams reached bowl games in 1960, 1962, 1965, 1966 and 1969, winning four of those five games. Two of his teams (1960 and 1969) ended the season ranked in the final Associated Press polls, but the Gators never won an SEC title during Graves’ tenure in Gainesville. He stepped down from the position following the 1969 season but remained Florida’s athletic director until 1979. Graves was 70-31-4 in 10 seasons at Florida. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1990.
