The Next McNeese Head Football Coach
If anyone believed that Frank Wilson was here in Lake Charles for something more than a cup of coffee, then their hearts were ripped out, broken in half, and then stomped on.
As soon as I heard we hired a coach of his pedigree known as a fantastic assistant and award-winning recruiter, I knew it would be sooner than later that an FBS university would be calling.
I may sound like a salty armchair quarterback, but I love McNeese and don't want to see them hire another coach who doesn't want to build us into a national power once again. This article is about the future of the McNeese football program. I've been a fan of the Pokes for more than three decades. In that time I've seen a lot of winning football and recently in the last decade a lot of mediocre football.
I believe we need to hire a coach that has roots in SWLA. Someone who loves this area and wants his family to stay here for generations. A coach who is familiar with the devastation of hurricanes and won't freshen up his resume the next time we have a storm. A coach who will be around to build the program for decades.
I know the exact coach that McNeese needs to hire. He's a proven winner, he has built many football programs quickly, he knows how to hire great assistant coaches, and he calls SWLA home.
The Lake Sports Director Patrick Frey joined me and we talked about who we think that McNeese should pursue as the next head football coach of the Cowboys. And I think my coach will surprise you.
