The (Baton Rouge) Advocate is reporting that Pete Richardson, former head football coach at Southern University, has been contacted by “a prominent Grambling alumni group” about becoming the new head coach at Grambling.
“I got contacted by a group of alumni a couple of weeks ago,” Richardson said. “We’ve been debating back and forth as to what we’re going to do. I still haven’t had the opportunity to talk to the powers that be.”
“I know it’s going to be a tough situation,” Richardson said. “I still think it’s a good job. The possibilities in that program are great.”
Richardson was Southern’s head football for 17 years (1993-2009) and finished his tenure with the school with a record of 134-62 record. During that time he amassed five SWAC titles and four black college national titles.
