Louisiana-Lafayette latest to can their coach

Rickey Bustle, Orkeys Auriene

For the ninth time in the past five weeks — and the fourth time in the past 24 hours — a Div. 1-A head coach has found himself booted from the sidelines straight onto the unemployment line.

The latest coaching casualty in a firing line that shows no signs of slowing down and will only pick up steam in the coming weeks is apparently long-time Louisiana-Lafayette coach Rickey Bustle.

According to the Associated Press, and citing a source familiar with the decision, the Sun Belt conference school fired Bustle following the conclusion of the Ragin’ Cajuns’ regular season Saturday. ¬†Athletic director David Walker plans to announce the dismissal on Monday.

In his eight years at the helm, Bustle compiled a 41-65 record, including 3-9 this season.  Bustle never led ULL to a bowl game, although he did manage a co-conference title in 2005.

As for potential replacements, we’re fairly certain we can state that Jon Gruden‘s name will not be mentioned.
