South Lafourche head football coach leaving

South Lafourche head football coach leaving

South Lafourche High School football coach Dennis Skains has accepted the same position at Cecilia High School in Breaux Bridge.

Skains and Tarpons athletic director Brian Callais confirmed the move Tuesday morning.

Skains spent four seasons with the Tarpons and led them to three playoff berths and a 24-19 overall record. The team went 6-5 last season and fell to Bastrop in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs.

He was an assistant at Teurlings Catholic for eight years and an assistant at Belle Chasse for three years.

The head coaching job at Cecilia became available when former coach Terry Martin accepted the same position at Breaux Bridge. Cecilia went 10-2 last season, the No. 3 seed in the playoffs and lost to Karr in the second round of the Class 4A playoffs.

According to school officials, the Tarpons hope to have a new coach in place by the middle of May.
