Louisiana College defensive line coach Brock Hays is the new running backs coach for Nicholls State coach Tim Rebowe, according to a source.
This past season was Hays's first in his position at Louisiana College. The New Orleans native also served as the program's pro scouting liaison and is a rising recruiter.
Before his collegiate coaching debut, Hays was assistant head coach, assistant defensive coordinator and defensive line coach at Edna Karr High for a season. That was after he was defensive coordinator at Miller McCoy Academy in New Orleans in 2013.
Hays was also a defensive assistant at Edna Karr High from 2010–12. Prior to that, he was assistant defensive coordinator and defensive line coach at Grambling (La.) High for a year.
He was New Iberia (La.) High's defensive line coach in 2007 following three seasons as the offensive line coach at Helen Cox High in Harvey, La.
Nicholls State had a 3–8 record this past season in Rebowe's inaugural campaign.
