Louisiana Tech has named Kim Dameron as the team's defensive coordinator.
Coach Skip Holtz said Tuesday Dameron brings 14 years of experience in that role to the Bulldogs' program.
Dameron joins Tech after spending two years at Cornell, serving as safeties coach and defensive coordinator. He also spent three seasons with Ole Miss as safeties coach and saw two of his players drafted by the NFL. Prior to that, he served as defensive coordinator at Louisiana-Monroe, Stephen F. Austin, Eastern Illinois and Cincinnati.
Louisiana-Lafayette football coach Mark Hudspeth says he's seeking a replacement for defensive coordinator Greg Stewart.
Hudspeth said Wednesday that Stewart will not return to the Ragin' Cajuns' coaching staff for the 2013 season. He did not indicate what sparked the coaching move but thanked Stewart for his contributions that led to the team's 18 wins, including a pair of New Orleans Bowl titles over the last two years.
The face-lift of Nicholls State University's football stadium is finished, a little behind schedule but on budget.
The Daily Comet reports the more than $1.3 million project was focused on replacing the stadium's 40-year-old, six-person elevator, which had become dangerously unstable.
Mike Davis, Nicholls' facilities director, said rebuilding the elevator shaft gave the school a chance to make some other changes to John L. Guidry Stadium's facade. Crews enlarged the lobby and built a patio in front of the stadium.
