Florida Atlantic named its field at its football stadium after former coach Howard Schnellenberger.
The field will be named Howard Schnellenberger Field after school trustees approved the field name.
Schnellenberger coached FAU for eight seasons, leading the program to two bowl victories and one conference championship. He retired after the 2011 season with 41 victories at the school.
“I am humbled beyond belief that the University would bestow this great honor on the Schnellenberger family, and me personally," said Schnellenberger. "This is probably the highlight of my coaching career.”
