LSU football countdown Day 49: Curley Hallman was an Aggie –

It’s T-Minus 49 days until LSU’s 2017 season opener lifts off in Houston’s NRG Stadium against first-time opponent BYU. Each day until then, here’s an LSU sports fact (mostly football but with a sprinkling of other sports) that has a connection to the state of Texas or season openers:

LSU has had 32 full-time head football coaches before current coach Ed Orgeron. The only one who graduated from a Texas-based school was Texas A&M graduate Curley Hallman, who was just 16-28 from 1991 to 1994 before he was fired.

Hallman’s winning percentage of .364 is the worst of any Tigers’ coach who coached more than one season.
