Former University Of Alabama Head Football Coach Gene Stallings is recovering a mild stroke, according to Tidesports.com.

The coach was at a Banquet in Montgomery Thursday Evening. Speaking from his home in Paris, Texas, Stallings said,  “I introduced Dabo (Swinney, the Clemson head coach and a former player for Stallings at Alabama) as the speaker but I didn’t feel well at all. So I went to the hospital and they determined that I’d had a stroke before the banquet".

Stallings flew back to Texas on Friday but had to cancel an appearance in Tuscaloosa this weekend. He revealed  that doctors had recommended that he curtail travel plans for the next six weeks during his recovery.

Stallings was Head Coach at the University of Alabama from 1990-96. He went an impressive 70-16-1 in seven seasons. That included the memorable 1992 Season, when Alabama went 13-0, en route to a 34-13 win over Miami in the Sugar Bowl, to secure Alabama’s 12th national championship.

We certainly wish Coach Stallings a speedy recovery.
