Jim Bibbs

Flashback Friday with the first-ever Black coach in Michigan State University history, the great Jim Bibbs. 

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin, we turn back the clock for a special Flashback Friday! We look back a special interview with legendary MSU track and field coach Jim Bibbs. Coach Bibbs is the first Black coach in MSU history, coaching 26 All Americans and 52 Big Ten Champions. Athletes of note include World Record holders Herb Washington, Marshall Dill, and U.S. Olympian Judy Brown. Also included is throwback dialogue between Al and former engineer Isaac Constans. Reminisce a bit on this episode of Current Sports.
