Following a tribute video introduced by Tom Jackson that featured former players and coaches relaying kind words to the icon, Corso brought the house down, fighting back tears while thanking the rest of ESPN's "College GameDay" crew for supporting him while he recovered from a stroke.
Corso played at Florida State University, setting a school record for most interceptions (14) as a cornerback that lasted almost two decades. In 1958 he began his career as a coach, and got his first head coaching job at Louisville in 1969, where he coached Jackson. Corso had a 73-85-6 career record as a college coach (he spent one year coaching in the USFL) when he was hired by ESPN in 1987.
