Lance Guidry named McNeese St. Head Coach
Hope his fire translates to the field.

Mean streets blah blah (getting the dumb shite out of the way)

I honestly think the 16 team was going to be better than 15 regardless, mainly because of the QB position and they're bringing a ton back on defense.

Viator didn't leave the cupboard empty. Guidry mentioned recruiting in his introductory speech to the Cowboy Club. Hopefully they can look beyond New Orleans, Shreveport, and Houston.
quote:

In 2015, Guidry's defense played a big part in the Cowboys posting a perfect 10-0 regular season mark and running away with the Southland Conference championship, the 14th in school history, a league record.

The Cowboys ranked No. 1 in the Southland Conference this past season in total defense (300.2 ypg), rushing defense (87.4 ypg), and scoring defense (13.2 ppg). McNeese ranked No. 12, 4, and 3 respecitvely in those categories in the FCS. The Cowboys also ranked No. 1 in the league and 6th nationally in first downs defense, No. 1 in SLC and 3 in FCS in red zone defense; No. 1 in SLC and 2 FCS in 4th down conversion defense; and No. 1 in SLC and 7 FCS in 3rd down conversion defense.




quote:

This is the fourth stint for Guidry, a 1995 McNeese graduate, on the Cowboys staff. He served as a graduate assistant in 1994 then returned as the school’s defensive coordinator from 2000-04, and in 2008, coached the defensive backs.

In his 10 combined years previously on the McNeese coaching staff, the Cowboys have compiled an 86-35 record, including a 50-16 mark in Southland Conference games.

McNeese has won four conference championships during that span (2001, 2002, 2003, 2015), made six FCS playoff appearances (1994, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2013, 2015), and played in the 2002 FCS National Championship game.

His 2014 defense led the conference in rushing defense (112.5 ypg), ranked second in in total defense (330.2 ypg) and scoring defense (22.7 ppg), and was first in opponent first downs (16.3 p/g).


In 2013, Guidry led a defensive unit that saw six players earn all-conference honors and two more named to the all-Louisiana team. The DWA ranked third in the league with 13 pass interceptions and was second with three of those picks returned for touchdowns. The unitl also posted 21 take-aways on the year.

Guidry served as defensive coordinator at Western Kentucky in 2011 and 2012 and was named interim head coach on December 8 of 2012 to lead WKU against Central Michigan in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl in Detroit, Mich., on December 26, a game the Hilltoppers dropped 24-21.

He coached three players while at WKU - DE Quanterous Smith, LB Andrew Jackson and S Jonathan Dowling - that went on to be selected in the NFL Draft.

Guidry has experience in the role as a head coach, as the former assistant coach at Miami (Ohio) led the Redhawks to a 35-21 victory over Middle Tennessee as the interim head coach in the 2011 GoDaddy.com Bowl, helping Miami finish off a 10-4 season after going 1-11 the previous year. Miami became the first FBS school to go from double-digit losses to double-digit wins in consecutive seasons.

Guidry helped orchestrate a similar turnaround since arriving on the Hill in 2011, helping WKU to back-to-back winning seasons in 2011 and 2012, including the program’s first-ever bowl bid since joining the FBS.

His 2012 Hilltopper defense was a force nationally, ranking in the top 40 in seven different national defensive categories. The Guidry-led defense ranked 23rd nationally in total defense (344.42) and 12th in the nation in tackles for loss per game (7.42). His squad also ranked at the top of four defensive categories in the Sun Belt Conference, including total defense, pass defense efficiency (128.4), sacks (31) and first down defense (19.3), while ranking second in rushing defense (136.6), scoring defense (25.6), passing defense (206.2) and interceptions (13). Under Gudiry’s guidance, WKU senior defensive end Quanterus Smith put together a record-breaking 2012 season, accumulating 12.5 sacks and 18.5 tackles for loss on his way to being named the Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year. Smith’s sack total in 2012 was just one away from setting a single-season Sun Belt Conference record, and his 24.0 career sacks tied the conference record.

re: Lance Guidry named McNeese St. Head Coach
This is the most excited about the direction of the program in a while.

I think we are primed for a run under this new leadership. Hopefully this fire will light under others in the staff as well.

re: Lance Guidry named McNeese St. Head Coach
I like how he basically called out Lake Charles when talking about how everyone needs to "Cowboy Up". I think this was the right move. He cares about this program and I think he is the right guy to take the reigns. Wonder if Jim "the stooge" Gazollo will write an article about the new breath of life in the program.

Anyone read that moron's article Monday? I've never liked him. Dude is about the dumbest "sports writer" I've ever had the displeasure of reading. I still remember when the idiot wrote about Eastern Washington's upset of #25 Oregon State like it was the first time an FCS team upset a ranked FBS team. That was in 2012 or 2013. Dumb frick.

If I'm not mistaken, he did he same garbage with writing about the Astros.

I don't like Scooter Hobbs either. He writes as if he thinks that his style is trendy and cool with the sarcasm and one liners, like people don't "get" it.

Rubs me the wrong way

Is Guidry the first black head football coach in McNeese history?

Yeah, because Janzen didn't have any control over what he did with his life. What person did Guidry murder that set that example?

I know our parents are the ones that set the example in our lives, but you can't lay it all at the parent's feet. At some point, a person has to take responsibility for his own actions, and society has to blame the kid, not the parents.

I guess my parents get all the credit in the world for me busting my arse and getting 2 college degrees. I didn't have any part in any of that. CONGRATS MOM AND DAD, HERE ARE YOUR DEGREES!

Just cause he's got a brotha for a son, that doesn't make him black......now if this were Alabama, and he had a brother for a son, well, that would probably make him a grandfather, too. lmao!
