Coach Bryant Was Secretly Investigated By FBI for Civil Rights Violations, AP Reports

According to documents obtained by an FOI request, Alabama's legendary head coach was tracked by the FBI from 1969-1971 following allegations of discrimination against black athletes. The inquiry followed a lawsuit against Coach Bryant and the university filed by noted civil rights attorney U.W. Clemon on behalf of a black student organization. The agency compiled a 27-page dossier on Coach Bryant before the dismissal of the lawsuit in 1971.
