Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne delivers good news about Gene Stallings

Less than a week after Gene Stallings suffered a minor stroke, there’s good news to report about the former Alabama coach.

Alabama AD Greg Byrne gave the update on Saturday evening:

Stallings, 82, has had a run of bad health this summer. He was hospitalized in May following a spike in blood pressure less than a week after he suffered a “mild” stroke.

Stallings was a very successful coach for the Crimson Tide and remains an important figure in Tuscaloosa. He was a two-time SEC Coach of the Year and finished his 7-year run with Alabama with a 70-16-1 record.

He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2010.
