BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Southern athletic director William Broussard spent several minutes making his pitch to the university’s board of directors Friday. Their approval for the next permanent head coach on the bluff took much less time.
A unanimous vote made Dawson Odums the 20th head coach at Southern.
Coach Odums was not available for comment Friday but will be introduced at a press conference Tuesday.
Broussard met with the media following the meeting. Click on the video for the story.
