You know you have a novice football program when they almost kill the head coach trying to give him a Gatorade shower following the program’s first-ever victory.
67-year-old former Georgia coach Bill Curry was knocked to the ground by his own exubarant Georgia State players following Thursday’s win over Shorter College. In a not-so-humorous side note, that’s exactly how legendary football coach George Allen died. His Long Beach State players drenched the former Redskins and Rams coach with Gatorade following a 1990 season ending victory over UNLV. Allen caught pnuemonia from the late November drenching and died at the age of 72.
