Bryant Vincent hired as new head football coach at Louisiana-Monroe

Former UAB interim head coach Bryant Vincent, who spent the 2023 season as OC at New Mexico, has been hired as the next head football coach at Louisiana-Monroe. Vincent is a Kentucky-native who previously spent significant time coaching at both UAB and South Alabama.

“We are fired up to welcome Coach Bryant Vincent to our Warhawk family and lead ULM football,” said AD John Hartwell. “Coach Vincent is bringing passion, positivity and a proven plan to guide our football program to levels of success we have not seen since becoming an FBS program. He is a relationship guy, and that will resonate with our student-athletes, prospective recruits, his coaching staff, the University, Northeast Louisiana and all of Warhawk Nation.”

Vincent had been the offensive coordinator for four seasons at UAB (2018-21) when he was thrust into the interim head coach role the summer of 2022 after Bill Clark announced his retirement. He led the Blazers to a 6-6 record in the regular season plus a victory in the 2022 Bahamas Bowl over Miami (OH), which extended the program’s streak of winning seasons to six (2017-22). He was not retained after the season, with UAB ultimately hiring Trent Dilfer instead.

“I am beyond excited and honored to be the Head Football Coach at ULM,” Vincent said. “I am confident with the leadership and vision of President Dr. Ron Berry and Athletic Director John Hartwell that we will build a championship program. Now is the time for the Warhawk family to all come together as one.”

ULM moved on from previous head coach Terry Bowden last month after three seasons and a 10-26 record. The Warhawks went just 2-10 (0-8 Sun Belt) in 2023.
