Ralph “Shug” Jordan coached the Auburn Tigers for 24 seasons, from 1951 through 1975. With 176 wins, Coach Jordan led his alma mater to more wins than any other head football coach in Auburn’s rich football history. The 1950s were probably his best decade with the Tigers winning the national championship in 1957.
Shug Jordan remains one of the most highly respected personalities in the history of Auburn University, not only because of his success as head football coach, but also because of his tireless devotion to the Auburn community.
