Fourcade resurfaces at Hooter's event

We caught up with former Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings coach John Fourcade and fans of the amiable coach won't be surprised to learn that he was attending a Hooter's convention in Las Vegas.

"I just finished watching a swimsuit contest," Fourcade said. "I wasn't judging it ... I was just watching it."

Fourcade and his partners own a string of Hooter's Restaurants across the Gulf Coast and have plans to open more. He said that he'll also be the general manager and head coach of the Biloxi Headhunters, an af2 expansion team, next year. The team will play in a new arena in Biloxi that is supposed to open in October.

Meanwhile, Fourcade is enjoying the success of his former team.

"I'm really proud of the guys with the Battle Wings and the season they've had," Fourcade said. "Coach (Jon) Norris is an outstanding coach."
