Eugene Beauharnais Beaumont, Jr., (October 2, 1868 – October 20, 1934)[1] was an American football coach. He served as the head football coach at the University of Alabama program during their inaugural football season in 1892. Beaumont was an alumnus of the University of Pennsylvania. During his one-season tenure, Alabama defeated Birmingham High School, composed of students from various high schools in the city of Birmingham, split two games with the Birmingham Athletic Club, and lost to Auburn University in February 1893. Beaumont was fired at the end of the season and replaced by Eli Abbott. The University of Alabama's yearbook, the Corolla, said of Beaumont: "We were unfortunate in securing a coach. After keeping him for a short time, we found that his knowledge of the game was very limited. We therefore got rid of him."[2]
