La. Tech tapping Skip Holtz as new coach
Question of the Day
RUSTON, LA. (AP) - Skip Holtz wasn’t without a head coaching job for long.
He was introduced as Louisiana Tech’s new coach Friday, less than two weeks after he was fired by South Florida .
Holtz replaces Sonny Dykes, who left to accept the head coaching job at California last week. Louisiana Tech went 9-3 under Dykes this season, with a potent offense that averaged 51 points and 578 yards per game, but was surprisingly left without a bowl bid after balking at an early invitation to the Independence Bowl.
“I am tremendously excited for the opportunity to build on what coach Dykes started and to lead this great team forward,” Holtz said. “This is a football program with outstanding student athletes, a history of winning and optimism in the future.”
The younger Holtz is coming off a 3-9 2012 campaign at South Florida, where he was 16-21 in three seasons.
“I am extremely excited about the opportunity to have a coach of the caliber and experience of Skip Holtz leading our football program into the future,” Louisiana Tech President Dan Reneau said. “The success he has had throughout his career as a head coach is solid and will offer a unique opportunity for our student-athletes to learn from one of the best.”
