(WVUE) - Southeastern's next head football coach will be a guy with strong ties to Louisiana. According to multiple media reports, Frank Scelfo will be introduced as the Lions head coach on Tuesday.
The website Footballscoop.com first reported the hire on Monday.
Scelfo is a native of Abbeville and graduated from Louisiana-Monroe in 1981. He's coached on both the high school and collegiate level in Louisiana, with one of his stops being Tulane as an assistant coach to his brother, Chris, who was the Green Wave's head coach.
He also spent six seasons as an NFL quarterbacks coach with the Arizona Cardinals and Jacksonville Jaguars. But, most recently, he was the offensive coordinator at UT-San Antonio, under Frank Wilson. Scelfo was relieved of his duties back in November after the Roadrunners ranked 109th in the scoring this past season and didn't score a touchdown in their final two games.
The university has scheduled a 1 p.m. press conference to make the announcement official.
