MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Terry Bowden will be named the next head football coach for the University of Louisiana Monroe, according to KNOE Sports Director Aaron Dietrich. ULM is expected to officially announce Bowden as its new head football coach later today. 

The 64-year old has spent the past two seasons as a graduate assistant at Clemson, where he’s pursuing a master’s degree. He coached Akron from 2012 to 2018, going 35-52 with two bowl appearances.

Bowden will replace Matt Viator who was fired on Dec. 7 after an 0-10 start to the season and a 19-39 record at the school.

Viator joined ULM in 2016 coming from McNeese State where he had a winning record.
