Chuck Long 'Destined for Greatness' Book Released

10/31/2019 - Chuck Long is one of the most famous and successful quarterbacks in Iowa football history. It's a little strange this book hasn't come out earlier.

The full book title is "Chuck Long: Destined for Greatness: The Story of Chuck Long and Resurgence of Iowa Hawkeyes Football"

I had forgot that Chuck Long was born in Norman, Oklahoma. When he joined Bob Stoops on the Oklahoma staff in 1999 (after successfully transitioning from Hayden Fry to Kirk Ferentz), and won a National Championship in 2000, he mentioned that his dad was so happy, since he grew up a big Sooner fan. That was a really cool story!

Similar to the Bob Stoops book, here are some videos related to the book highlights, and I'll keep adding to it as I proceed through the book.

While coaching at Oklahoma, he helped QB Josh Heupel achieve success and a national championship. The ironic part was that he was also the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy in 2000 (something Chuck knows very well).
