John Fourcade to Tech?

Louisiana Tech coach Jack Bicknell is looking for a new assistant coach. Battle Wings coach John Fourcade is at least available from September through December for a coaching gig. It would seem that that's a marriage made in Heaven.

The hiring would give Bicknell a chance to look more carefully at a permanent assistant coach instead of rushing into something quickly. Fourcade's name would get him in a lot of doors on recruiting trails in south Louisiana and in Mississippi. Although an offensive player with Ole Miss and with the Saints, Fourcade is capable of coaching linebackers. He's also fiery enough to get Tech's backers playing over their heads.

If things didn't work out on a permanent basis, Fourcade could rejoin the Battle Wings in December and Bicknell could name a replacement.

Just a thought.
