Print Article

BOZEMAN­­­ ­—— Montana State football legend Bill Kollar, a long-time NFL assistant coach currently with the Denver Broncos, landed on the ballot for National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame’s 2020 induction class on Monday.

Kollar was a First Team All-America at MSU in 1973 after earning Second Team accolades in 1972. He was also named Big Sky Defensive Player of the Year by the UPI as a junior in 1972, and was the first lineman in conference history to earn First Team honors three times. He was MVP of the 1974 Senior Bowl, the first defensive player so honored, and was drafted with the 24th selection of the 1974 NFL Draft by Cincinnati. He earned All-Rookie honors that season, and played with the Bengals until 1977 before finishing his career with Tampa Bay (1977-82).

A native of Warren, Ohio, Kollar’s number is one of four retired at Montana State and he was inducted into the Bobcat Athletics Hall of Fame. He has coached with Tampa Bay (1984), St. Louis (2001-05), Buffalo (2006-08), Houston (2009-14) and Denver (2015-present) in the NFL after beginning his career as a college coach.
