Vikings' Grant Has Strong Legacy In College Football

Bud Grant patrolled the sidelines as the head coach for the Minnesota Vikings for many years and has has sons and grandsons he thought were good enough to play college football for the University of Minnesota, which like the Vikings is located in Minneapolis.

Grant had to wait a while to see one of his own wind up at the U. Previously, his offspring had found success at Eden Prairie College and Minnesota-Duluth. Now, finally, the Golden Gophers have come calling for Ryan Grant, one of Bud's grandsons.

Ryan, a receiver who has the academic credentials to gain admittance into an Ivy League, may actually go that route and bypass the U. of Minnesota and the Big Ten.
