Former American football player, coach, and college athletics administrator. He served as the head coach at Louisiana State University (1955–1961), the United States Military Academy (1962–1965), and the University of South Carolina (1966–1974), compiling a career record of 109–95–5. Dietzel's 1958 LSU team concluded an 11–0 season with a win over Clemson in the Sugar Bowl and was a consensus national champion. For his efforts that year, Dietzel was named the National Coach of the Year by both the American Football Coaches Association and the Football Writers Association of America. Dietzel also served as the athletic director at South Carolina (1966–1975), at Indiana University Bloomington (1977–1978), and at LSU (1978–1982).

After retiring from college athletics, Dietzel became a watercolor painter. He is now retired and living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with his wife, Anne. Dietzel authored a book that was published by Louisiana State University Press in September 2008, titled Call Me Coach: A Life in College Football.
