Joe Aillet

The winningest football coach in Louisiana Tech history and one of the most respected in the country during his brilliant 26-year coaching career with the Bulldogs, Aillet produced a record of 151-86-8 and won or shared 12 conference championships between 1940 and 1966. He served as Tech's athletic director for an additional four years and his 30 years of service as an administrator is largely responsible for the University's overall athletic reputation and tradition. A dynamic man with high ideals, Aillet continually instituted new ideas and techniques into his coaching practices. He also saw that a large percentage of his athletes graduated. A member of several national coaching Hall of Fames, Aillet was instrumental in forming the Louisiana High School Coaches Association in the 1930s and the Gulf States Conference in 1948, serving as its first president.  He passed away Dec. 28, 1971.
