Mike Sewak declined to comment on a story that he is a candidate to be Louisiana-Lafayette’s next head coach.
Sewak, co-offensive line coach at Georgia Tech for the past three seasons, was the head coach at Georgia Southern from 2002-05, succeeding Paul Johnson. Sewak led the Eagles to a 35-14 record. However, he was let go after not leading the Eagles to any national titles. Before being the Eagles’ coach, he was the offensive coordinator from 1997-2001, calling the plays that led the team to two national championships.
The Cajuns fired Ricky Bustle on Nov. 29. Bustle went 41-65 in nine seasons. The Cajuns play in the Sun Belt Conference.
Sewak has been a coach on various levels for 27 years, starting as an assistant at Hobart College in 1982.
UL senior associate athletics director Scott Farmer worked with Sewak at Georgia Southern.
