The Sports Mole has learned from multiple sources that Steve Robicheaux will be recommended to once again become the head football coach at Destrehan High School during tonight's scheduled St. Charles Parish School Board meeting in Luling.
Ken Trahan confirms through sources close to sportsNOLA.com that Destrehan principal Stephen Weber is expected to recommend to the board that Robicheaux return to lead the Wildcats. The board will then vote on the recommendation, and, according to sources, Robicheaux will be approved.
Currently serving as Coordinator of Safety, Security and Emergency Preparedness for St. Charles Parish Public Schools, Robicheaux had a 10-year run as head football coach at Destrehan (2000-2009 seasons) and led the Wildcats to Class 5A state titles in 2007 and 2008. He stepped down in June 2010 to take the newly-created position for the parish's public school system.
Robicheaux led Destrehan to four district titles and compiled a 100-23 record. All of his Wildcats teams made post-season trips.
The vacancy at Destrehan was created when Chris Stroud, the former defensive coordinator under Robicheaux, stepped down after the 2011 season. Stroud led the Wildcats to a 5-15 record in his two years at the helm.
Robicheaux could return to a profession in which he is very well-respected by his coaching brethren. He essentially left two summers ago for family reasons but the urge to coach again and lead the Wildcats back to prominence in the river parishes may be too strong for him to ignore.
