Lou Tepper, who has been both a head coach and defensive coordinator at multiple levels of college football, has settled at Buffalo as the Bulls’ defensive coordinator, the school announced today.

“I could not be more excited to be able to add to our staff a football coach like Lou Tepper,” said head coach Jeff Quinn in a statement. “He brings with him tremendous experience, and a genuine love of teaching and coaching the game of football to young men. His accomplishments speak for themselves. I look forward to seeing what our defensive staff will be able to accomplish with Lou on board and an exciting group of returning letterwinners next fall.”

Tepper has been all over the place in his 35 years of coaching. He’s spent time as a head coach at Illinois, Edinboro and Indiana (PA), although most of his coaching career has been spent as a defensive coordinator. Tepper’s more notable coaching stops as a DC included Illinois, LSU and Colorado.

He replaces William Inge, who in January accepted a position on the Buffalo Bills coaching staff.
