The McNeese Athletic department has decided to part ways with now former head football coach Lance Guidry.

McNeese said that a national search will begin immediately for a new head football coach.

Coach Guidry started at McNeese in December of 2015 as the head of the football program and in his three seasons his record was 21-12 and failed to make the playoffs all three years.

Two of the three years under Guidry the pokes finished the season at 6-5 including this season.

McNeese Athletic Director Bruce Hemphill released a statement,

"I thank Coach Guidry for his service to the university and wish him well in his future endeavors," Hemphill said.
