Report: New UL Football Assistant John Simon Leaving For Arizona State
According to a report by SI's Thayer Evans, Mark Hudspeth's most recent addition to the football staff is leaving Cajun Country before ever coaching a single down for Louisiana.
John Simon, who was hired by Hudspeth to coach wide receivers is on his way to Arizona State where he will coach running backs. Simon came to Louisiana after spending the last three seasons at Southern Miss.
While the University has yet to confirm the departure of Simon, the coaches page on UL's website shows the wide receivers coaching position as TBA. ESPN 1420 has confirmed that Coach Hudspeth met with his staff Sunday evening, however the purpose of the meeting is unclear.
ESPN 1420 will bring you more information as it becomes available.
