LAFAYETTE — Louisiana-Lafayette football coach Billy Napier announced the hiring of Tim Leger as an assistant football coach and recruiting coordinator Wednesday. Leger will coach the wide receivers for the Ragin’ Cajuns.

“Tim Leger is a terrific coach and recruiter,” Napier said. “He will bring great experience and wisdom relative to our recruiting footprint and strategy. In my short time around Tim, his ability to teach and attention to detail were elite. He will be a great addition to our staff. It’s awesome to reunite he and his wife Ashley with their son Gunner.”

Leger served as the wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator at ULM from 2016-17. Before ULM, Leger spent nine seasons as the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach at McNeese from 2007-15.
