Roberts introduced as head coach at SE Louisiana

Southeastern Louisiana introduced Ron Roberts as its new head football coach on Monday.

Roberts had been the head coach at Delta State the past five seasons, guiding the Statesmen to a 47-16 record and four Division II playoff appearances, including a championship game appearance in 2010.

A former linebacker at UT Martin, Roberts served as defensive coordinator at Delta State, Texas State and Tusculum.

Roberts replaces Mike Lucas, who was fired after a 3-8 record this season and a 19-40 mark in his six seasons. The Lions play in the Southland Conference.
