Louisiana-Monroe hires McNeese State’s Matt Viator as HC


The world of college football had an usually high number of head coaching vacancies this year and they are starting to slowly close up with each passing day. The most recent one to be filled is Louisiana Monroe’s, who just fired Todd Berry just over a month ago.

The Warhawks have stayed in-state to find their next head coach as they announced McNeese State’s Matt Viator has been hired. Gene Ponti of KTVE in Monroe first reported the news via Twitter.

Viator had a ton of success with the Cowboys in ten seasons. He led the team to five FCS playoff appearances and four Southland Conference Championships.

The Cowboys went undefeated in the regular season this year, the second time in Viator’s career, but lost in the first round of the playoffs. Viator ends his career with the Cowboys with a 77-33 record.

Viator replaces Berry, who leaves the Warhawks with a 28-43 record and only one bowl appearance in six seasons.
