Bo Rein

Bo Rein was a college football coach for more than two decades, including one season as offensive coordinator at Arkansas and four more as the head coach at North Carolina State. He was hired to take over the LSU football program prior to the 1980 season, but died in a plane crash before the start of the season and never coached a game for the Tigers. He was just 34 years old when he passed away. He posted a career record of 27-18-1 in 46 games as a head coach, all at North Carolina State, and was 2-0 in bowl appearances. His 1979 team won the ACC championship, prompting LSU to hire him as its next coach. Rein was replaced as head coach with Jerry Stovall.
