Tulane football sets big announcement for Wednesday

Publish date:

Tulane is set to make an important announcement this Wednesday evening regarding the Green Wave football program.

At 5:45 pm, athletic director Rick Dickson and president Scott Cowan will unveil “The Playbook,” which is expected to illustrate a new commitment to success.

The most program’s most recent significant success came in 1998 when Tommy Bowden, Rich Rod (offensive coordinator), Shaun King, and JuJuan led the Green Wave to a 12-0 record. That year, Tulane (seriously) had the nation's best receiving core (JuJuan Dawson, PJ Franklin, Kerwin Cook, Andrian Burnette, and John Wilson) and a kick-off coverage unit that would knock your ass off.

The Tulane administration has reportedly created a road map of changes that will take the program to another level. The goal is long term on-field success that will rejuvenate a fan base in New Orleans and throughout the state of Louisiana.

There is talk that Dickson and Cowan will address the possibility of a new football stadium. The Green Wave currently plays in the Louisiana Superdome.

That announcement of “The Playbook” will take place on campus at the Wilson Center.

Bob Toledo returns for his 5th season as head coach next season. The non-conference schedule includes Southeastern Louisiana, at Duke, at Army, Syracuse, and at Hawaii.
