Former SU Coach Pete Richardson to be inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame this weekend
We salute former head football coach Pete Richardson on his induction into the 2012 Class of the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. The ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, June 23. Richardson joins the ranks of legendary SU Coach A.W. "Ace" Mumford, who was inducted in 1984. Richardson defined Southern University football from his arrival in 1993 to 2009. He won five Southwestern Athletic Conference titles, including a three-peat from 1997-99 (the school's first consecutive SWAC titles since 1959-60), four black college national titles (1993, 1995, 1997 and 2003) and four Heritage Bowl titles.
