LAKE CHARLES, La. — McNeese State University's football team has hired Lance Guidry to serve as its defensive coordinator, his second stint in the same job.
The school announced Saturday that Guidry will take over for Mike Collins, who vacated the position to become Sam Houston State's defensive coordinator.
Guidry is a 1995 graduate of McNeese State. He was the school's defensive coordinator from 2000 to 2004 and returned to coach the team's defensive backs in 2008.
Guidry was the defensive coordinator at Western Kentucky for the past two seasons.
