    UL Football Re: Gerald Broussard is Back (where he has been)

    Coach Gerald Broussard is not only a GREAT MAN, but a very good coach and that is just the tip of the iceberg. Coach G is a dynamic person, super recruiter, and a phenom on the radio!!! I can not wait to see the fire he lights under the D-Line and the level he raises recruiting to. He and Coach Troy W are alot alike.

    Great to see you back Coach G!
    Best of luck Coach Quinn!

    Best of luck to Coach Quinn, but in my opinion the final step in righting the Baldwin hire has now been fixed, G man is back in da house...

    I look forward to seeing G man and hopefully this gets the puzzle put together.

    I like Gerald Broussard a lot just this past weekend me and my dad were talking about Gerald and I was saying that Hudson reminded me of Gerald basically they are football coaches. Intense get the job done people.

    Hopefully to the future it is looking bright on the sidlines of The Swamp. I was already renewing my season tickets but now I want Gerald and Hudson to ride around with me.

    It is a good day at Louisiana...

    Good luck to him with the Cajuns.

    Hey Rich, because I know its going to happen...you and I can refer everyone back to this particular post.

    I dont believe I have ever heard G say anything derogatory towards McNeese or its fans. He has only had good things to say.

    I shouldn't have to put this in print, but you know...eventually someone might say something different.

    Great to hear from you Doc, and I will pass on the thought.

    Not to worry, momma. Gerald is one of the good guys. He respects his players and they learn to respect him. The best thing is that he wants to be back at his Alma Mater.

    You "ephalants" have pretty dang good memories to go back and resurrect this 3 year old thread.

    He is now headed to UL! _
    Actually, this thread was started by Zee and board moderators merged it with an older thread creating the confusion. I'm not sure why it was done?

    UL Football Re: Gerald Broussard is Back (thread starts with where he's been)


      The UL football program plans to stay within the Ragin' Cajun family for its next assistant coach.
    Gerald Broussard, a Lafayette native and former UL player and coach, has been pegged to become the new defensive line coach for the Ragin' Cajuns. He would replace Shawn Quinn, who resigned Monday after six years with the program to explore other opportunities.

    In December, Broussard ended a three-year stint as the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Stephen F. Austin, an NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision School in Nacogdoches, Texas.

    Broussard, an offensive lineman at UL from 1980-83 and a 1984 graduate of the university, spent 14 seasons as a coach for the Cajuns before making coaching stops at West Alabama, Tennessee-Martin and Scottsdale C.C. and McNeese State.

    He relates VERY well with his players, and motivates them to dig deep within themselves to put forth their best effort on every snap. G was my son's position coach the last time he was here, and I can tell you that I am extremely glad to have such a fine man and coach back on staff at UL.

    I'll answer for Z. Gerald is a competitor. Great motivator and the his position players usually love him and will bust their butts for him. Also, he is a very good recruiter.

    Besides that, he is just a good guy.

    Gerald knows how to win. Having been an integral part of the Brian Mitchell/Jake Delhomme years and helping coach McNeese to the 1AA Championship game proves that. He is has recruiting skills locally that are immeasurable. If you have ever been around him any length of time, you know he has that skill that allows an adult to reach a kid and get the best out of him/her. As far as coaching a new position goes?? If you are a good coach, you can coach any position.

    I happen to check McNeese's board about this hire and one person stated that if Bustle was smart, he just picked up a heck of a recruiter for this area, if he'd let him.

    I'm scared I need some medicine or something but I am agreeing with a McNeese Fan. What is this world coming to....

    I had to shake my yes to every thing you said.

" The Cajuns defensive coaching staff will have a new look with the hiring of Broussard to coach the defensive line...Safeties coach Tim Rebowe will shift to linebackers and cornerbacks coach Hurlie Brown will coach the secondary...Defensive coordinator Kevin Fouquier with spend time will all defensive players "


  19. UL Football Broussard officially joins coaching staff


      The wait finally came to an end for Gerald Broussard.

    Broussard, a former Lafayette High standout and UL football player and coach, was named the new Ragin' Cajun defensive line coach late Tuesday night. His hiring is pending approval by UL's System Board of Supervisors.

    "I'm glad to have a family member join our coaching staff," UL head coach Rickey Bustle said. "Gerald's been around Ragin' Cajuns football for a long time. It's like he's family.

    "He brings a lot of passion to our team."

    Broussard replaces Shawn Quinn, who resigned before spring practice to pursue other opportunities. In December, Broussard ended a three-year stint on the coaching staff at Stephen F. Austin, a member of the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision in Nacogdoches, Texas.

    The Lafayette native was pegged to become UL's new defensive line coach in February, but the university had to request to fill the position because of the statewide hiring freeze imposed by Gov. Bobby Jindal on Jan. 15.
