Not as a head coach.Bryant and Paterno met 4 times as head coaches (1975, 1979, 1981, 1982) with Bryant winning all four games.
When Billie Beat Bobby was created in 2001.
Bear Bryant coached 38 years Joe Paterno beat his record in 37 Years. However Joe coached at the same school his entire career. Bear Bryant took over 5 loosing programs and did not coach at the same school his entire career making his accomplishment of 315 harder to imagine. Joe Paterno never beat Bear in 4 attempts as a head coach. No coach is given the checkbook or the power to do as he pleases until he has proven his self as a coach Bear did it 5 times Joe only had to do it once. Not trying to take anything away from Joe but imagine Joe's record if he had to start at 5 different schools with loosing programs or imagine the Bear coaching his entire career at Alabama. Joe beat his record in 2003 to be the best coach you have to beat the best coach and he never did.
