Aggies planning tribute for former coach

Former Texas A&M coach Emory Bellard was recently diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, but the school is putting together an honorary dinner for the coach.

Former Texas A&M coaches Jackie Sherrill and R.C. Slocum plan to be in attendance at the Nov. 19 dinner, as well as Frank Broyles, Spike Dykes, Grant Teaff, Bill Yeoman and Bum Phillips.

Bellard coached Texas A&M to a 48-27 record in a little more than six seasons at Texas A&M in the 1970s, twice going 10-2.
