Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — New Southern Head Football Coach Dawson Odums called out the "Jaguar Nation" today for their help in taking the program to the next level.
Odums was officially introduced as the new head coach today on campus in front of Jaguar supporters.
Odums earns his first head coaching job without the “interim” tag.
The new head coach expressed his excitement for the journey ahead and admits he won't be able to do it alone.
"It’s going to take me and it's going to take you,” stated Odums. “We are going to do this together and we are going to be in this journey together. I won't make any predictions. I'm just a good ol’ country boy that loves to coach football."
NBC33's Matt Boudreaux will have more on Odums introduction on NBC33 News at 10.
