By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks has hired Terry Bowden as their new head football coach. He replaces Matt Viator, who departed the team at the end of the season.

Bowden has not been a head coach since the 2018 season with the Akron Zips. The past two seasons, he has served as a graduate assistant/offensive analyst with the Clemson Tigers coaching staff.

“First of all, I want to thank President Dr. Ron Berry and Athletics Director Scott McDonald for giving me this opportunity to coach at ULM,” Bowden said. “I got introduced to ULM back after the 2015 season when a contingent flew up to Akron and talked to me about the job. They did a great job of selling me on the potential of this program and the commitment they had to turning it around. Although the timing just wasn’t quite right, I did remember feeling that with my success at places like this, and my desire to get back down South to a college town very much like Auburn and Clemson, that this was a perfect place for me to be. I felt then that I was the best guy they could find to build a winner at ULM and I still do.”

The 64-year-old is 175-114-2 as a head coach. He has served as the Salem Tigers, Samford Bulldogs, Auburn Tigers, North Alabama Lions, and Zips head coach.

In addition, Bowden also was a graduate assistant with the Zips in 1986. He also was a graduate assistant with the Florida State Seminoles in 1982.

Bowden has guided his team to five Division Championships. He also received numerous Coach of the Year awards throughout his career.

“We’re extremely excited to welcome Terry Bowden to our Warhawk family as head football coach,” McDonald said. “He brings a winning pedigree to our program. He has won at all levels of college football, beginning as the youngest head coach in the country in his first job at Salem College and continued that through his tenure at Samford and Auburn, where he consistently competed for SEC Championships. He followed with success at North Alabama and at Akron, where he led the Zips to their first bowl victory in school history.”
