“Earlier today, I informed head coach Broderick Fobbs of my decision to make a change in leadership of our football program,” Scott said. “Broderick Fobbs is one of the finest human beings I have had the pleasure to meet in this industry and he has been a tremendous role model and mentor to our young men. We appreciate his many years of service to our university and wish both him and his family nothing but the best. Consistent with our values as an institution, he deserves the utmost respect from the Grambling State University Tiger family throughout this transition.”  Trayvean Scott, Ph.D. - VP of Intercollegiate Athletics, Grambling State University

Coach Fobbs was preparing the Tigers to meet Southern in the 48th Annual Bayou Classic in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Scott has promoted linebackers and special teams coordinator Terrence Graves to lead the Tigers as the interim head coach for the clash with the Jaguars.

Fobbs should not have a problem finding another institution interested in his services.
