Edmond A. Chavanne was an American football coach. He served as the head coach at Louisiana State University for two seasons, 1898 and 1900, compiling a career record of 3–2. John P. Gregg coached the team in 1899. Chavanne was the first LSU football coach to have graduated from LSU. He also holds the distinction of being the only player-coach in LSU football history. The 1898 season was delayed due to a yellow fever outbreak throughout the South. Prior to the season starting, LSU's previous football coach, Albert Jeardeau, had departed the school and the coaching position. Since the school had not made any provision to name a replacement coach, the job was left to Chavanne, the team's captain.[1]
