Yep he was told his services were not needed. Dont know about Mrs Touchet comment. But the team numbers are down and his 3 seasons were not impressive. Not gonna put the man down because as a person and away from campus he is a family man and a dedicated coach. His program was just not working. As for the timing... its my understanding that positions are advertised in New Orleans during the finals for football. I wish him luck where ever he goes next.

Coming from the kids he would always say "if there is a cancer on the team, we must get rid of it." He was right and Francis just got rid of it. He always blamed the kids.
Like A FAN said he was a dedicated coach. His program just didn't work.
I don't think being a head coach was his calling.

I think it is important to keep in mind that many of the kids that stuck it out the last few years developed a hard work ethic that will benefit them in their future as young adults. Although it was a tough three years, I predict that this coach will be a successful head coach one day and wish him the best.

maybe the new coach should be just that(the coach) keep all the wanna be's on the other side of the fence. i watched how certain people influenced the coaching last year in baseball and football. It is a shame that a kid plays for who they are instead of what they can do. hey new coach. tell the parents to (stay out of your business) from the start. tell them you really dont care who they are , were they went to school and how long they lived here. because the last time i checked that really didnt help them win last year.they actually have parents that want to live through there kids eyes. they cant figure out that if you earn it you get it.but everyone else sees it. And that will sure makes people dislike a coach and the people that are kissing his ass.

I understand that the formal interviews will be next week. Also that some of the coaches on staff have expressed an interest and were told to apply.
