From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Charles W. "Charlie" Tate (February 20, 1919 – June 10, 1996) was the head coach of the Miami Hurricanes football program from 1964 to 1970. During his tenure, he compiled a 34-27-3(.555) record. His best season came in 1966, when his team went 8-2-1, with a Liberty Bowl win against Virginia Tech. Chuck Foreman was the most famous recruit for coach Tate in the late '60's. When interviewed at the ESPN Club in Orlando, Florida, Foreman, who went on to have a great career in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings, said the following about Charlie Tate, "He had faith in me, as a black athlete in the South during that tumultuous time, and I will never forget him. He was a great, generous man."
