Axman is interim Nicholls State football coach

THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — Nicholls State University has named Steve Axman as interim head coach for its football program for the remainder of the season.

A search for a permanent head coach will begin immediately.

Axman replaces Charlie Stubbs, who resigned over the weekend due to health concerns. In addition to his head coaching responsibilities, Axman will oversee the quarterbacks and help direct the offense. Axman brings a wealth of experiences after coaching at UCLA, Washington, Minnesota, Stanford and Arizona.

Director of Athletics Rob Bernardi says the move gives the program the best opportunity to move forward and have success this season.

Axman's first game with the Colonels will be Saturday at North Texas.
