Louisiana-Lafayette hires Billy Napier as football coach

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) Louisiana-Lafayette hired Arizona State offensive coordinator Billy Napier as football coach Friday.

Napier replaced Mark Hudspeth, fired after the Ragin' Cajuns finished 5-7 this season. On Thursday, Hudspeth joined Mississippi State as associate head coach and tight ends coach.

"My family and I are excited and humbled for the opportunity to serve Cajun Nation and our Louisiana football program," Napier said. "We will make it a priority to bring in the best talent from the state of Louisiana and the nation."
