College Football: Texas State officially adds Douglas, George to its staff

Sports Editor

It’s official: Texas State confirmed last week’s news that Troy Douglas was making the three-hour drive southwest to San Marcos — with one caveat. 

Douglas, who had been an assistant at Sam Houston State since February, will actually serve as the Bobcats’ safeties coach in 2016. At first, it was believed that Douglas would guide Texas State’s linebacking corps, the vacancy that was left when John Wiley resigned from that post last week, citing “personal/ family reasons.”

Countdown to Kickoff: Louisiana-Lafayette poised for bounce-back season in 2016

Louisiana-Lafayette's 2015 season came out of nowhere. 

It certainly was contrary to what had become status quo during Mark Hudspeth's tenure. 

In fact, prior to last season's clunker, the Ragin' Cajuns had known nothing but success under the man they call Hud. In each of his first four seasons in Lafayette, Louisiana, the Cajuns produced identical 9-4 records and romped to four straight New Orleans Bowl wins.

LAFAYETTE, La. — Whatever the coaches are telling Texas State at halftime, they may want to change it up.

Similar to three weeks back in a shootout loss to Southern Miss, the Bobcats came out lethargic after the break and paid for it dearly once again.

UPDATE: Texas State fills vacancy, hires Sam Houston State's Troy Douglas

Texas State moved quickly in filling the vacant spot on its football staff.

Less than 24 hours after the Bobcats announced that associate head coach John Wiley resigned for “personal/ family reasons,” Everett Withers turned to a familiar name. Texas State hired Sam Houston State’s Troy Douglas as Wiley’s replacement, a source told the Daily Record on Thursday afternoon.
