Larry Blakeney Biography
Larry Blakeney was born September 21, 1947 in Birmingham, Alabama and is the football head coach of the Troy Trojans at Troy University. He is the most successful coach in the history of Troy and his stint there is the 4th longest uninterrupted tenure among active head coaches in college football (behind Joe Paterno, Bobby Bowden and Frank Beamer).
Blakeney was the recipient of the Johnny Vaught Lifetime Achievement Award by the All-American Football Foundation in 2000. He was inducted into the Wiregrass Sports Hall of Fame in 2008 and is due to be inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame on May 30, 2009.
Troy State transitioned to Division I-A in 2001. During that season they defeated three Division I-A schools, including their first win over a BCS conference school, Mississippi State. Since joining I-A (from 2002), Troy has posted a 29-31 record. The transition makes Blakeney one of two coaches to ever take a football team from Division II to I-A (the other is UCFs Gene McDowell).
Blakeney earned his first bowl win in 2006, beating the Rice Owls football team 41-17 in the New Orleans Bowl.
