Fri Feb 24, 2017
Paul Rizzo, former IBM executive and dean at UNC-Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, died Thursday at the age of 89. He was initially recruited by Coach Carl Snavely to play football at Cornell University. When Snavely moved to UNC in 1945, Rizzo followed, and would end up on the same team as Charlie “Choo-Choo” Justice. In the 1950 Cotton Bowl, Rizzo scored twice.
