Former Alabama coach Gene Stallings, who led the Crimson Tide to the 1992 national championship, is recovering after suffering a mild stroke.
According to Cecil Hurt of TideSports.com, Stallings, 82, introduced Clemson coach Dabo Swinney at the Jimmy Rane Foundation charity golf tournament on Thursday night, but said he did not feel well. After visiting a hospital, doctors determined Stallings had suffered a stroke earlier in the day.
Stallings is resting at his home in Paris, Texas.
Stallings was a two-time SEC Coach of the Year (1992 and 1994) during his seven-year tenure with the Tide, compiling a 70-16-1 record.
Stallings also had a notable playing career at Texas A&M from 1954-56. He began his coaching career under Bear Bryant at Alabama as a defensive assistant in 1958.
Stallings was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2010.
