Louisiana Tech fires Skip Holtz ahead of season finale

Louisiana Tech football is moving on from coach Skip Holtz after a largely successful nine-year stint in Ruston. With the team sitting at 3–8 ahead of its finale against Rice, the program is heading in another direction.

Louisiana Tech confirmed the Holtz news after it was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg. Holtz will coach the team’s final game, as the program prepares for its first coaching search since 2012.

“Skip and I talked and agreed it was time for a change for both parties,” said athletic director Eric Wood in the program’s announcement. “Louisiana Tech owes Skip a debt of gratitude for his loyalty and dedication to our football student-athletes, our University, and our community over the past decade.
