Curley Hallman is a former college football player and coach. He served as the head coach at the University of Southern Mississippi and Louisiana State University, compiling a career record of 39–39.
In 1987, Hallman became the head coach at Southern Miss, where he proceeded to compile the highest winning percentage in school history with the help of future NFL star quarterback Brett Favre. He left for Baton Rouge just days before the Golden Eagles were due to play in the 1990 All-American Bowl.
LSU started the 1991 season with one-sided losses to Georgia (31–10) and Hallman's alma mater, Texas A&M (45–7), and finished 5–6. The season marked the second time LSU suffered three consecutive losing seasons, and the first time since 1954 to 1956. LSU ended up having 4 consecutive losing seasons under Hallman.
