Troy Trojans Football History

The Troy Trojans began playing football in 1909. They took multiple breaks from football for the World Wars, the Great Depression and other reasons. From 1947 on, the Trojans have not taken a break from football.
The Trojans weren’t very competitive from 1947-1965. However, they did manage to string together a few winning seasons and a Southern States Conference Championship in 1949.
Billy Atkins coached the Trojans from 1966-1971. Atkins took the Trojans on a magical run. The Trojans finished with a winning record each season during his tenure. They went undefeated in conference play and won three conference championships from 1967-1969.
1968 was historically great for the Trojans. They finished with an 11-1 overall record and won the NAIA Championship. In 1970, the Trojans moved to the Gulf South Conference. They added another conference championship in 1971 after finishing 5-1 in conference play.
The Trojans had three coaches during the 70a including Charlie Bradshaw. Bradshaw led the Trojans to a GSC Championship in his first year at the helm. They enjoyed winning seasons for his first five years. The Trojans finished with a 5-15 record through his final two seasons.
Chan Gailey was at the helm for the 1983 and 1984 seasons. In 1984, the Trojans finished with a 6-1 conference record and won the GSC. Additionally, they finished 12-1 overall and won the Division II Championship. Unfortunately for the Trojans, Gailey decided to go up the ranks and became a position coach for the Denver Broncos.
Rick Rhoades coached the Trojans from 1985-1987. He helped put together a 28-7-1 overall record and a dominant 22-2 conference record. In 1986, he led the Trojans to another GSC Championship and the semifinal round of the Division II playoffs. In 1987, they won the GSC again. Additionally, they went on to win another Division II championship after finishing 12-1-1.
Larry Blakeney coached the Trojans from 1991-2014. In his first two seasons at the helm, the Trojans finished with a combined 15-7 record. Before the 1993 season, the Trojans moved up to the FCS. They made the FCS playoffs in each of their first four seasons. In 1996, they joined the Southland Conference. They finished 12-2, won their first Southland Conference Championship, and lost in the semifinal round of the playoffs. They went on to win the conference back to back from 1999-2000 with a combined 13-1 conference record. After being independent for three years from 2001-2003, the Trojans joined the Sun Belt in 2004.
The Trojans finished 7-5 in their first season in the Sun Belt and were invited to their first bowl game. The Trojans won five Sun Belt Championships in a row from 2006-2010. During that stretch, they went to five straight bowl games and won two.
The Trojans’ last four seasons were underwhelming with Blakeney at the helm. He retired after the 2014 season. He left as the winningest coach in school history with a 178–113–1 overall record, a 77-39 conference record, and eight conference championships.
Neal Brown served a four-year stint at Troy. After a 4-8 record in his first season, the Trojans never won less than ten games. In 2016, they finished 10-3 and went on to beat Ohio in the Dollar General Bowl. In 2017, they finished 11-2, won the Sun Belt, and won the New Orleans Bowl. After going 10-3 and winning another bowl game in 2018, Brown accepted the West Virginia head coaching job.
Neal Brown is the current head at Troy. The Trojans finished 11-2 in his first two seasons and a 7-1 conference record. They won the Sun Belt and clinched a berth in the Cure Bowl.
