Fobbs officially Grambling football coach

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Grambling State University's hiring of new football coach Broderick Fobbs has been approved by the University of Louisiana System governing board.

Fobbs will receive a $195,000 annual salary. The board unanimously agreed Friday to his selection and praised the hiring, which university leaders hope can improve a strained relationship between the school's administration and players.

Currently the tight ends coach at McNeese State, Fobbs will remain with McNeese through the Cowboys' second-round FCS playoff game Saturday. He'll then take over at Grambling, where he played in the mid-1990s for Hall of Fame coach Eddie Robison.

Grambling won only one game this season, a year likely to be remembered most because a player walkout forced the cancellation of Jackson State's homecoming game in October.
