The head coach at Texas A&M from 1989-2002, R.C. Slocum became the winningest coach in Texas A&M and Southwest Conference history. Slocum’s Aggies experienced reigns of dominance over the Southwest Conference, including a 22-game league winning streak, a 28-0-1 conference record from 1991-94, and three Southwest Conference titles. He also led Texas A&M to one of the school’s landmark victories with a double-overtime upset of Kansas State, which gave the Aggies their only Big 12 championship. Slocum led the Aggies to 11 bowl games in 14 seasons, five New Year’s Day bowl appearances and 10 AP top 25 finishes. Under Slocum’s leadership, 14 players earned first-team All-America status. A Texas Sports Hall of Fame and Texas A&M University Athletics Hall of Fame member, Slocum served as the chairman of the Children’s Miracle Network in Central Texas as well as the Cattle Baron’s Association, which raises scholarship money for young people in ranching. He was active with Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Scotty’s House home for abused children.
