Hammond, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - Southeastern Louisiana University agreed to a
contract with football coach Ron Roberts which would extend him through the
2016 season, the Southland Conference university announced Thursday.
In his second season at Southeastern, Roberts has the 16th-ranked Lions in
first place in the Southland with a 7-2 overall record and a 4-0 conference
"Getting Ron a contract extension was a high priority for our athletic
program," athletic director Jay Artigues said. "He is a proven head coach and
has demonstrated his skills in the short time he has been at Southeastern. Ron
and his entire staff are huge assets to the university and excellent mentors
for our student-athletes."
In his first season at Southeastern last year, Roberts guided the Lions to a
5-6 record and their most conference wins (five) since 1978, when the program
was a part of the Division II Gulf South Conference.
Artigues said the contract extension is subject to approval by the University
of Louisiana Board of Supervisors.
