Former LSU, South Carolina Coach Dietzel Dies At 89

Paul_Dietzel_(1958)Legendary football coach Paul Dietzel — the man who led LSU to its first national championship back in 1958 — passed away yesterday in Baton Rouge.  He was 89-years-old.

During a career that spanned 26 years, Dietzel served as an assistant at Army, Cincinnati, and Kentucky (under Paul “Bear” Bryant) before becoming a head coach at LSU (1955-1961), Army (1962-1965) and South Carolina (1966-1974).  He also served as an athletic director at South Carolina, Indiana, LSU and Samford.

His career record was just 109-95-5, but his creation of a three-platoon system at LSU — one that helped the Tigers’ win the national title in ’58 — lives on in legend.  If you’re not up to speed on Dietzel’s career or his White team, Gold team and Chinese Bandits, click here to read his obit from The New York Times.  (And if you’ve ever wondered why LSU’s band plays this during games, now you know.)

While he also coached at Army and South Carolina, Dietzel will best be remembered for his days on the Bayou, where he “helped make Saturday nights in Baton Rouge magical.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the coach’s family.
