COLLEGE FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE NATION : LSU Fires Hallman With 14-28 Record

November 16, 1994

Curley Hallman, who lost more games in a shorter period than any of his predecessors, was fired as coach at Louisiana State.

Hallman, 14-28 since coming to LSU from Southern Mississippi, will coach the last two games of the season before the dismissal takes effect.

This is Hallman's fourth year at LSU, all losing seasons. It is also an unprecedented sixth consecutive losing season for the Tigers (2-7), who close the season on the road against Tulane and Arkansas.

Athletic Director Joe Dean said he told Hallman of his dismissal Monday after conferring with LSU Chancellor Bud Davis. Hallman made it clear he was indeed fired: "I did not resign, folks."

He will be paid for the remaining year on his contract.
