Skip Holtz was introduced as the newest Louisiana Tech head coach on Friday evening, and the Bulldogs’ athletic department provided a behind-the-scenes look at how Holtz’s first day on the job in Ruston took place.
First, Holtz spoke to his new team, setting goals for what he wants to accomplish at Louisiana Tech and saying he he wants to coach in Ruston. He closed his first team meeting by shaking the hand of every Bulldog in the room.
Next, it was down the hall to meet the fans and media in his introductory press conference. “This is the place I want to be. I think there can be great things here,” said Holtz.
Finally, it was time for a photo session on the field and a stop in his new office before wrapping up Day One as the head man at Louisiana Tech. Now in his fourth turn as a head coach, Holtz clearly knows how to make the first day on the job a successful one. And with an 88-71 record in 13 seasons, he knows how to make game day a success, too.
