BWTB: Bill Kollar wrestled a bear

Posted Apr 16, 2014

Defensive line coach Bill Kollar spoke recently about the time he wrestled a bear in the mid-1970's.

Bill Kollar went into the Senior Bowl Hall of Fame last week, in large part because of his heroics in the 1974 game.

He, former Rams wideout Torry Holt, and current Denver pass-rusher DeMarcus Ware were all inducted.

I don't know what Holt or Ware said in their induction speeches, but I doubt they were as entertaining as Kollar's tale of wrestling a bear for $50 in the mid-1970's.

If you've spent any amount of time around the Texans defensive line coach, his story is not surprising. Kollar's held that job in Houston since 2009.

It was also greatly appreciated by defensive end J.J. Watt, who tweeted this in resonse to Kollar's acceptance speech.
