    Kevin Foote is a good guy to work alongside and this is an area rich in high school sports. I won't lie, it's going to be a lot of work, but you won't find a better group of coaches to deal with anywhere else (in my humble opinion). Lafayette is also a wonderful place to live. Lots of great places to eat, cool places to visit and New Orleans is only two hours away.

    I worked there for 10 years, so if you have any questions specific to the area or to the sports scene, PM me.

    Can anyone shed more light on this position?

    How quickly they're looking to make a hire? Years of experience required?

    I'm very interested in this position as I grew up an hour from Lafayette, but I only have one-year experience at a daily newspaper in Mississippi.
