H.L. Bourgeois named Jack Phillips Jr. its new head football coach Tuesday.
Phillips is the former coach of Houma’s now defunct indoor football team, the Bayou Bucks.
He is currently an assistant coach at Yazoo City High in Yazoo City, Miss. Phillips will start in January.
He was chosen over five other candidates. One of those candidates was Aaron Meyers, a coach at Morgan City High.
Meyer was the second Morgan City coach mentioned as a candidate for a job in the Terrebonne\Lafourche area.
Two weeks ago, MCHS head coach/athletic director Brandon Nowlin was a candidate for the coaching vacancy at Central Lafourche.
But, Keith Menard, then-football coach at Catholic High-New Iberia, was announced as the head coach last week.
