UL Lafayette, Mark Hudspeth finalizing six-year deal

UL Lafayette is set to approve a new six-year contract for coach Mark Hudspeth as early as next week, according to a source. Final details are being hashed out.

Hudspeth has posted three consecutive nine-win seasons at Lafayette, and his career record as a college head coach (including seven years at Division II North Alabama) is 93-33, or a 73.8 winning percentage.

The Ragin’ Cajuns were 3-9 before Hudspeth took over. Hudspeth won the first three bowl games in ULL history.

Hudspeth was already one of the Sun Belt’s highest-paid coaches with a reported $750,000 in annual value. Now that Bobby Petrino's out of the league, Hudspeth is likely the Sun Belt's top earner.
