Brazile, who earned the nickname “Dr. Doom” during his pro playing days, helped the Tigers win two SWAC championships.

About the Black College Football Hall of Fame
HBCUs have played a significant role in the history of college football. NFL black quarterback pioneers Pro Bowl MVP James "Shack" Harris and Super Bowl MVP Doug Williams have personally made this journey and remain committed to preserving the HBCU legacy. It is this promise that inspired them to establish the Black College Football Hall of Fame, honoring its greatest players, coaches and contributors.
The City of Atlanta, with its central proximity to more than half of the nation’s HBCUs, was selected as the perfect home for the Hall of Fame. The Inaugural Enshrinement Ceremony was held February 2010, in conjunction with Black History Month.
The Black College Football Hall of Fame is presented annually by The Shack Harris & Doug Williams Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization.
