St. John's coach John Gagliardi -- college football's winningest coach with 484 victories -- has decided to return for his 60th season directing the Johnnies. St. John's finished 6-4 thanks to a season-ending four-game winning streak that helped convince Gagliardi to return. It will be his 64th season as a college head coach overall.

"For awhile there, I thought maybe I had lost it," Gagliardi told Frank Rajkowski of the St. Cloud Times. "But we came back and started playing good football. That helped a lot."

He added that he didn't know what he'd do with his time if he gave up coaching.

"I don't know anything else," said Gagliardi, 85. "What else should I be doing? Am I going to take a trip to Italy or go climbing the Himalayas? I don't want to do any of those things. There are days I don't even like going into St. Cloud."
