Bill Curry

Bill Curry was a head coach in the SEC for 10 seasons at the University of Kentucky and the University of Alabama. Curry began his coaching career at his alma mater, Georgia Tech, and took over at Alabama in 1987. He posted a 26-10 record in three seasons in Tuscaloosa, including a 10-1 record in 1989 and a share of that year’s SEC championship. Curry was named SEC Coach of the Year after the season. He departed from Alabama following the ’89 season with the best win percentage by a Crimson Tide coach since Bear Bryant. However, he was 0-3 against Auburn in the Iron Bowl while coaching Alabama.

In 1990 Curry took over as head coach at Kentucky following a contract dispute with Alabama. He coached the Wildcats for seven seasons, and in 1993 led the Cats to the Peach Bowl, their first bowl game in nine seasons. Kentucky lost the game to Clemson to end the season at 6-6, its best record during Curry’s tenure in Lexington. The Cats failed to reach another bowl game with Curry as their coach.

In 2008 Curry was hired as the first football coach at Georgia State, which played its first game in 2010. He retired from coaching following the 2012 season.
