Louisiana-Monroe's Orlando Early is the second head coach this week to leave for a job as an assistant. Just a day after Hartford's Dan Leibovitz resigned to join Jerome Allen's staff at Penn, Early told his team Wednesday that he was resigning to join Darrin Horn's staff at South Carolina.
An official announcement is expected Tuesday.
"He said he wanted to be close to family," ULM junior Lawrence Gilbert told thenewsstar.com. “It caught us off guard. I thought we were just coming in to talk about academics and maybe individual workouts.”
Assistant Jimmy Voight will be named the interim coach.
Louisiana-Monroe finished 12-19 in Early's fifth season at the school.
