Almost a decade after the Legislature authorized a state museum to honor former Grambling football coach Eddie G. Robinson, it will open on what would have been his 91st birthday.

New Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly will give the keynote address at Saturday's dedication.

Friday evening, Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin headlines a corporate fundraising banquet.

Many former Grambling players, including Pro Football Hall of Famer Willie Davis, Doug Williams and James "Shack" Harris, will join Secretary of State Jay Dardenne and local officials at the dedication.
