  1. Tulane football coach Willie Fritz announced today the appointments of six position coaches and seven support staff members to his coaching staff. Fritz's coaching staff features Alex Atkins, assistant head coach/offensive line coach, Doug Ruse, offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach, Jack Curtis, defensive coordinator/safeties coach, Kevin Peoples, defensive line coach, Mike Mutz, linebackers coach and Jason Rollins, defensive backs coach. Atkins, Ruse, Curtis, Peoples and Mutz each coached with Fritz over the past two seasons at Georgia Southern, while Rollins has been a me
  2. Tulane made it official Saturday morning when the school fired football coach Curtis Johnson. Johnson finished 15-34 in his four seasons, culminating with a 45-34 loss to Tulsa on Friday evening. "I want to thank CJ for his hard work and his dedication to rebuilding the Green Wave football program. His efforts were rewarded in 2013 when Tulane reached its first bowl in 11 years. Since then, however, the program has not progressed to the level that we aspire to," said Tulane athletic director Rick Dickson in a press release. Tulane also indicated the hiring process for Johnson's successor wil
  3. Barring a last-minute change of direction, Tulane is set to part ways with football coach Curtis Johnson following Friday's game against Tulsa, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Tulane is set to make a decision on hiring a new atheletics director next week and a coaching search will be the immediate priority for the new athletics director, much like the situation at Central Florida. read more: http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/aac/2015/11/25/tulane-university-football-coach-curtis-johnson/76399708/

  5. TULANE HEAD COACH Curtis Johnson Opening statement... "My hat goes off to (UTSA) coach (Larry) Coker and his team. They played a very good football game. They played physical. It got a little chippy at times, but that is something that happens. I thought we did a good job for the most part, but we just couldn't overcome all of our penalties and mistakes. Those things are self-inflicting. We just had guys who were eager and anxious. You just can't do that." On the false starts and whether they were caused by crowd noise... "It could have been (loud), but I don't think so. Those things are s
  6. SAN ANTONIO, Tx - UTSA kicker Sean Ianno connected on a game-winning, 34-yard field with 14-seconds remaining to give the Roadrunners a 10-7 victory over Tulane in front of 24,606 at the Alamodome. Tulane was its own worst enemy today, committing a season-high 14 penalties for 111 yards, and giving up two crucial plays in the second half, including a 68-yard rushing touchdown that tied the game in the third quarter and a 62-yard pass play late in the game that set up the game-winning field goal. UTSA improved to 5-5 overall and 4-2 in league play. “My hat goes off to (UTSA) coach (Larr
  7. SAN ANTONIO—In a flash of yellow flags, the Tulane football team saw a reversal of fate on Saturday. The result was stinging: the Green Wave lost control of its Conference USA title fate. Tulane needed to win out its final three games beginning with Saturday’s road game against UTSA in the Alamodome to win the West Division and secure a spot in the league championship game. Instead, the Green Wave lapsed into a two-game slide and couldn't conjure any of the mojo that helped it win close games earlier this season. The 111 Tulane penalty yards, a busted coverage late, and the Roadrunners
  8. UTSA technically isn’t bowl eligible until next year. But UTSA coach Larry Coker said Monday that a bowl bid is possible with a strong finish. Coker also said UTSA’s home attendance could be a factor. North Texas (6-3, 4-1) and Rice (6-3, 4-1) are the other teams tied for first in the C-USA West. As the hottest team in the West with four straight wins, North Texas hosts UTEP (1-7, 0-4) on Saturday in another intra-division matchup. Rice, beaten last week by North Texas, has an open date.

  9. Tulane QB Nick Montana did not play in their 3 OT win over ECU... Impressive that they were still able to win the game without him.
  10. So I finally got verification that the game will not be televised live at all, on cable, DISH, DirecTV, or online streaming out here. It will be replayed 4 hours later but I'm not setting up an event for a game that's already over because that would be LAME. If there are any last minute changes that make it feasible to view the game in AZ I'll post here right away for anyone who might be in the area. Of course, if anyone else hears anything please add it here as well. A last-minute event is better than none at all if the opportunity opens up. But next week's MTSU game will be streamed
  11. The Tulane football team has at least one thing going into its favor this fall in its second campaign under Coach Curtis Johnson: its schedule. Instead of opening up with monsters in the first two weeks like it has in some seasons in the recent past, the Green Wave kicks off 2013 with SWAC opponent Jackson State and the Sun Belt’s South Alabama. There is no SEC team on the pre-Conference USA docket and the best non-league opponents appear to be Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Monroe and Syracuse—three teams Tulane plays in a row in September. Within Conference USA play, Tulane will face
  12. No other phrase could describe Tulane football's revitalization from last weeks drubbing at Syracuse or what happened against the Warhawks last year to a 31-14 non-conference victory at University of Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. Just a week ago, Tulane lost 52-17 to Syracuse amid special teams embarrassments (three blocked kicks), a slow start on defense, a lack of running game and faulty protection of quarterback Nick Montana. Those snafus were firmly memories as the Green Wave atoned all four issues against the Warhawks (2-3 overall, 0-0 in the Sun Belt). Tulane (3-2, 1-0 in Conference
  13. Early August is usually the peak of optimism for the Tulane football team before the inevitable cliff dive once the season starts. After a decade of losing, though, the Green Wave and second-year coach Curtis Johnson are seeing tangible signs that their talk of a turnaround won’t get hit with a reality check in September. Specifically, they can point to the heft on their defensive front seven and the lack of heft on the schedule in revamped Conference USA. “As ultra-competitive as I am, I’ll probably be disappointed with (just) six wins,” Johnson said Monday at Media Day. “We better ge
  14. Grant said he is undaunted by the selection. "I've done some research on the teams and they haven't really impressed me. I'll go with the coaches say, we have an easy schedule so we definitely are going to win more than six games," Grant said.

  15. It's safe to be excited about the future of Tulane football even if the Green Wave's recent results – say, over the past 14 years – paint a picture of a program stuck in a long, painful and irreversible malaise. Here are three reasons for optimism: One is the coach, Curtis Johnson, the former Miami (Fla.) and New Orleans Saints assistant with the inroads and recruiting touch to eventually bolster Tulane's roster with the sort of talent needed to win not merely once but consistently. The second is Tulane's upcoming conference swap, with the American Athletic Conference replacing Confere

  18. Curtis Johnson, age 29, struck a hip pose among the youth in New Orleans in 1991. He even had hair back then. Tulane football coach Curtis Johnson has area players considering his program Clad in a suit and tie, Johnson stepped into his hometown as a top recruiter/assistant coach from San Diego State, promising his head coach to pull some big fish out of the Big Easy and Louisiana-wide. Twenty-one years later, Johnson is the 50-year-old first-year Tulane head coach, tasked with the same thing — reaping talent from the local area. But one recruit changed everything for Johnson and i
