There will be some old with the new at McNeese State's Cowboy Football Coaching Clinic which begins a two-day run Friday at the Jack Doland athletic field house.
Registration ($40 a person) is scheduled to run from 5:15 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday in the Cowboy Room where there will also be a social beginning at 6 p.m. Starting at 7:30 p.m. there will be a McNeese film session with attending coaches invited to join Cowboy coaches in breaking down film in the field house.
On Saturday, the clinic begins at 9 a.m. in the field house with guest speakers to be offensive line coach Rob Sale and defensive coordinator Mike Collins of McNeese, Brian Barbay of Coldspring (TX) High School, Gary Joseph of Katy (TX) High School, Brent Indest of Carencro High School, Rusty Phelps of Jennings High School and former NFL offensive coordinator Joe Pendry.
That's the new.
The old will be featured at a "legends luncheon" that will be sponsored by Hammer Strength Equipment in the MSU touchdown room (second floor of the field house) at 1 p.m. in the field house and will honor former coaches Pat Collins, Ernie Duplechin and Jimmy Shaver.
It's a feature that will annually become part of the clinic according to director Lark Hebert.
Collins and Duplechin were standout collegiate coaches in Louisiana while Shaver was one of the state's top prep coaches.
Collins was the seventh head coach at Northeast Louisiana University (now UL Monroe) and he held the position from 1981 to 1988. He produced a 57-35 record as the head coach, making him the winningest coach in school history, and he led his team to the 1-AA national championship in 1987.
The Louisiana Tech graduate, who also served as an assistant coach there, has also been head coach at West Ouachita High, Ouachita High and Longview (TX) High. He recently retired as athletic director of the Longview Independent School District.
Duplechin spent 22 years at McNeese State as assistant coach, head coach and athletic director. In three years as head coach he produced a 28-6-1 record, won two Southland Conference titles, led his team to two appearances in the Independence Bowl and produced 19 all-conference players.
He served seven years as athletic director before retiring. He was inducted into the McNeese Hall of Fame in 1995 and he is also a member of the Louisiana College Hall of Fame, his alma mater where he was a football standout.
Shaver was head coach at Barbe High School for 29 years, producing a 237-100 record, taking his team to the state playoffs 27 times and never having a losing season. His total number of victories ranks him among the top 25 all-time coaches in the state.
He was named the coach of the decade in Southwest Louisiana twice and was named the Southwest Louisiana coach of the year more times than any other coach.
Shaver retired after the 2010 season.
