BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The SEC Network has unveiled a new SEC documentary, slated to run in September, that will focuses on the sudden and tragic death of Bo Rein before he ever coached his first game at LSU.

The university hired Rein as its new football head coach at the end of the 1979 season in hopes that his youthful energy could revitalize the program.

Returning from a recruiting trip to Shreveport on Jan. 10, 1980, the small plane in which he was flying crashed in the Atlantic Ocean, roughly 1,000 miles off course.

The title of the documentary, “The Bo You Don’t Know,” makes reference to fact that Rein is unfamiliar to many SEC followers.
