Louisiana Tech to name new head coach

Posted: Updated:

RUSTON, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Louisiana Tech University will name former South Florida Coach Skip Holtz as the next head coach of the Bulldogs.

The Holtz name is very familiar to college football fans.  Skip Holtz is the son of former Notre Dame Head Coach Lou Holtz.

Skip Holtz was fired from South Florida earlier this month after three disappointing seasons.  He also has head coaching experience at East Carolina, where he had more success and lead the Pirates to four bowl games in five years.

A news conference announcing Holtz as the new Tech head coach is expected to take place on Friday.

Holtz replaces Sonny Dykes, who left for California last week.
