FAU Athletics recently announced a celebration of life for legendary football coach Howard Schnellenberger, who passed away in March. The event will take place on Friday, Sept. 10 from 5 to 8 p.m. at FAU Stadium, and will feature football greats who played for and worked alongside Coach Schnellenberger over the years.

Coach Schnellenberger had a tremendous impact on the sport of football, and touched many lives and communities throughout his six-decade career. We will celebrate his legacy in a number of other ways throughout the upcoming season and into the future, including featuring a Howard Schnellenberger Field logo on the 50-yard line.

I hope you will join us for this special celebration on Sept. 10, to celebrate the life and career of a truly legendary member of the FAU family. The event will be free and open to the public, and all guests will have opportunities to win prizes. Please email FAU Athletics at with any questions.
