Former LSU and S Carolina Coach Paul Dietzel has passed

LINK


quote:

Paul Dietzel, "the artist, the coach and the legend" is dead at 89. His handprint on LSU football is unmistakable. He coached the Tigers to their first modern day national championship in 1958. The famed Chinese bandits and his three-team platoon system were his creation. What came to be the LSU look, virtually unchanged since 1955, was his idea.



RIP Coach, meant a ton to LSU folks

Sorry to hear that. Hadn't he become very ill in the past few months?

Prayers go up for him and his family. Hope he finds peace in that stadium in the sky.

Yes he had...he was still as sharp as a tack, but his body just started giving out.

RIP Coach.....

Meant a lot to USC also. Got us our one ACC conference championship in 1969. And he wrote the words to our current fight song -- similar to what he did at LSU.

RIP Coach.

Every time you hear Chinese bandits after a 3rd down defensive stop, it is a homage to coach Dietzel

RIP

Dietzel was the first civilian coach hired at West Point, which previously only considered Army men. Dietzel had earned his coaching stripes at Army under then-head coach Col. Earl "Red" Blaik.

also designed the current logo on our helmet and got us out of the ACC. he should have stayed on as AD, which would have helped us better during our independent years.
