McNeese State had a trying season (as I’ve written before) that started with Chad Clement resigning as head coach five games into the season. The team rallied from a 3-22 start to go 17-12 in the Southland Conference and 21-35 overall. The Cowboys have reached into their past to kick-start their future, hiring ex-big leaguer Terry Burrows, 39, as their new head coach.
Burrows has played and coached at McNeese and most recently served as head coach at St. Louis High in Lake Charles, La., which is where McNeese State is. St. Louis high won its first district title in 10 years this spring.
â€œThis is the job I wanted,â€ Burrows said in a release. â€œThis is my home. I could have probably gone anywhere after my professional career but this is where I wanted to be.â€
Morehead State also hired a coach to replace John Jarnigan, with Jay Sorg taking over the program. Sorg played at Morehead State and then for five years in the Reds system and was most recently a coach at Triple-A Louisville in that organization.
