McNeese State Coach Resigns

With his team off to an 0-4 start, McNeese State coach Chad Clement resigned on Thursday, saying in an official statement that his heart was not in coaching anymore. A Lake Charles, La., native and former Cowboys player and assistant coach, Clement was 82-84 overall after just starting his fourth season as head coach. McNeese State went 35-20 last season and its 22-8 record was the best in the Southland Conference in the regular season. Athletic director Sonny Watkins named assistant coach Chris Fackler as the Cowboys’ interim head coach. McNeese State visits Louisiana Tech this weekend.
