To satisfy that craving, Bloomberg News has done a lengthy profile of Paul Bryant Jr.'s finances. All you need to know is "Bear Jr." is rich -- which isn't news, considering his wealth is well known. But it's interesting to see this much information about such a notoriously private man.
"The late coaching legend would recognize the graying, taciturn man in one of the 101,821 seats at Alabama’s stadium in Tuscaloosa. That man is Bear’s son, Paul Bryant Jr., once known as Little Bear. Paul Jr. quarterbacked the 2002 multi-million-dollar fund raising drive, beginning with his own $10 million, that laid the foundation for Alabama’s return to football glory. Just as his father personified the rugged individualism of an earlier era, prowling the sidelines in a hounds tooth hat, this 68-year-old business mogul and president of the university’s board of trustees has taken advantage of the sport’s new age of commercialism to raise tens of millions of dollars for the football team," Bloomberg writes.
