    DelState mourns passing of former head football coach Al Lavan

    https://delawarestatenews.net/sports...oach-al-lavan/

    DOVER — Delaware State University Athletics is mourning the death of former Hornet head football coach Alton “Al” Lavan, who died early Monday in Colorado.

    Lavan was DSU’s head football coach for seven seasons, from 2004-10, posting an overall record of 41-37 and a 34-21 mark in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

    In 2007, Lavan led the Hornets to a 10-2 overall record and the school’s first MEAC championship in 16 years with a perfect 8-0 league mark, the second team in conference history to achieve the feat. The 10 overall wins still stand as a team record.


    In more than 18 years as a NFL assistant, Lavan’s resume’ includes stints with the Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers, Baltimore Ravens, and Kansas City Chiefs.

    A member of NFL Hall-of-Fame coach Tom Landry’s staff with the Dallas Cowboys, Lavan served as running backs for greats Tony Dorsett and Herschel Walker during his time with the Cowboys.

    He was a member of George Seifert’s 1990 Super Bowl champion San Francisco 49ers’ coaching staff.

    Lavan’s collegiate coaching tenure also included stops at Colorado State, Louisville, Iowa State, Georgia Tech, Stanford, and Washington.

    A college standout at Colorado State, Lavan played in the NFL for the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons before his career was cut short due to injury.
