Maddox Named New Head Coach at LC
Written by Mark Chreene on February 5, 2020
The Glenbrook Apaches will begin the search for another head football coach after Drew Maddox was named the sixth head coach of the Louisiana College football team in the modern era on Tuesday.
“My family and I are glad to be coming back to Pineville, a place we consider home,” said new Louisiana College Head Football Coach Andrew Maddox. “We enjoyed our time here the first time. It’s exciting for us to see many familiar faces, but now we’re ready to get started working and get this program the best we can get it and heading in the right direction.”
Over the last two seasons, Maddox served as the head coach at Glenbrook High School, where he took the Apaches to a 6-4 record in 2019, their first winning season in six years, while making the playoffs both seasons of his tenure. For his efforts in 2019, he was named the Webster Parish Coach of the Year.
After five years in the U.S. Army stationed at Ft. Knox in Kentucky, Maddox came to Louisiana College as a student in 2013 and joined the Wildcats football program as a walk-on. He appeared in 13 games over his two seasons in the orange and blue, and the team amassed a 13-7 record while he was a LC student-athlete. Maddox graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in history and a minor in physical education in 2015.
Immediately upon receiving his degree, Maddox joined Coach Dennis Dunn’s staff as an assistant coach, focused on linemen of both sides of the line of scrimmage and aided with special teams and was key in recruiting. In three short seasons, he was elevated to defensive coordinator for the 2017 and 2018 seasons, where his defense was in the top 25 of NCAA Division III in turnovers forced. His defenses also accumulated 75 tackles for loss.
