Tulane fires Curtis Johnson


Recommended Posts

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 will begin as soon as the school finds Dickson's replacement, which could come early this week. Dickson is retiring in June.

      Neal Smatresk, president of the University of North Texas, hit two pedestrians with his Toyota Highlander on the night of Thursday, Dec. 10, according to a police report obtained by the Denton Record-Chronicle.
      The Denton Fire Department took both pedestrians to Denton Regional Medical Center. Police allowed Smatresk to leave the scene in his vehicle. Neither he nor the pedestrians were charged with a traffic violation.
      The accident happened as Smatresk was leaving a shopping center at 1776 Teasley Lane at 9:19 p.m., according to the report. He was alone in the car. The intersection is two blocks south of Teasley’s intersection with South Interstate 35E.
      Smatresk, 64, was turning left onto Teasley after the light turned green at the shopping center’s private driveway. As he made the turn, he hit the two pedestrians as they were crossing Teasley Lane, the police report states.
