Larry Blakeney’s final game as head coach is Saturday afternoon when his Trojans host Louisiana Lafayette.

Word in the coaching profession is that Troy will shortly thereafter attempt to finalize an agreement with their new head coach. We are under the belief; based off of what we have been hearing, that the new head coach will be in place by the middle of next week, if not earlier.

Here’s a quick update on those who have interviewed as recently as this week and those that are real candidates. This is a high character group of individuals. Troy is going to have an impressive new head coach next week.
