Rich Rodriguez is back in the game. ULM announced Rodriguez as the Warhawks’ new offensive coordinator on Tuesday.

Rodriguez returns to the sidelines after spending 2020 out of the game. He worked most recently as the offensive coordinator at Ole Miss in 2019.

He arrives in a package deal with his son, Rhett, who graduate transferred to ULM after appearing in seven games in 2018 at Arizona.

Rodriguez owns a 163-119-2 career record as the head coach at Salem, Glenville State, West Virginia, Michigan and Arizona. He helped popularize the spread run game as Clemson’s offensive coordinator and West Virginia’s head coach.

Rodriguez joins a staff headed by Terry Bowden, who is back as a head coach following a two-year hiatus as a GA at Clemson. He is 175-114-2 as the head coach at Salem, Samford, Auburn, North Alabama and Akron. Bowden pre-dated Rodriguez at Salem by three seasons, but now they unite in Monroe.

As always, stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest.
