Greg & Rosanne Black, Marion, SC
Coach Dietzel was a fine Christian man who I had the honor of playing for at Carolina for 5 years, during which I can not recall once hearing or seeing anything in him which led me to doubt his Christian testimony. That to me spoke to the character of the man which in the game of life counts more than one's record of wins and losses. Yet he had his share of wins, even today he is the only USC head football coach to record a conference championship, a fact I hope Coach Spurrier changes this year. Yet Coach Dietzel's influence at Carolina goes way beyond all that for he truly laid the groundwork for the facilities which have been built upon by Coaches Holtz and Spurrier. My condolences go out to his family.

I still remember selling drinks at Williams Brice Stadium and met Coach Dietzel several times. He was a great coach and a great man. He will be sorely missed.

As a lifelong Gamecock and 20+ year resident of the High Country of North Carolina (Beech Mountain) I seem to have always had a connection with Coach Dietzel. He did so much for the University and Columbia as a whole. Later he was a vibrant part of the Beech Mountain community where some of his art still hangs for sale in Fred's General Mercantile. I have always enjoyed knowing that Coach was a part of "both of my favorite places to be" - Columbia, South Carolina and Beech Mountain, North Carolina.

Rest in Peace, Coach. Prayers for the family.

In 1969 I was a new employee of the South Carolina National Bank. My department had several USC students working part time and they referred to coach Dietzel as Pepsident Paul. They loved him and I think, at the time, he was the King of Columbia, South Carolina. He was an extraordinary person.
