I'm writing to thank you for the warm welcome and wonderful reception you gave me and my family when we arrived in Ruston last Friday. The enthusiasm and excitement we felt reaffirmed the decision we made to become part of this outstanding university and community.
It's truly an honor to represent you – Louisiana Tech's passionate and dedicated fans – and our student-athletes as the Bulldogs' new head football coach. Louisiana Tech has a growing national reputation for excellence, both as an academic institution and an athletics program. I am committed to strengthening that reputation and the traditions you have created, while ensuring our student-athletes compete with the highest level of integrity and intensity.
Most of all, I am committed to you, the fans of Bulldog Football. Your support and continued enthusiasm are our greatest source of motivation and inspiration. This program belongs to you.
Thank you again for the privilege of leading your football program. I look forward to meeting as many of you as I possibly can and seeing all of you in the stands at Joe Aillet Stadium next season.
