Stallings Speaks at Millican Ethics Symposium

Legendary football coach Gene Stallings keynoted the sixth-annual J.J. Millican Ethics Symposium at Oklahoma Christian.

“Coach Stallings was a great fit for our symposium because he has led groups with character, honesty and integrity,” said Elaine Kelly, associate professor of accounting. “Those are qualities we seek to instill in our business graduates.”

Stallings wrote “Another Season - A Coach’s Story of Raising an Exceptional Son,” which chronicles the joys and heartbreaks he and his family faced in raising their late son, John Mark, who had Downs Syndrome. 

Stallings played college football at Texas A&M University and later served as head coach there. He also was the head coach
of the NFL’s St. Louis/Phoenix Cardinals and at the University of Alabama. His 1992 Alabama team went 13–0 and won the national championship. Stallings was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a coach in 2010.

The Ethics Symposium and OC’s Ethics Week are sponsored by the J.J. Millican Endowment, which was created by OC board chair Don Millican and his wife Donna to honor Don’s father.
