Dear Green Wave Fans,

Earlier today we announced that Bob Toledo has resigned as head coach of the Green Wave and Mark Hutson, Co-Offensive Coordinator/Offensive Line Coach, has been named the interim head coach. We have started a nationwide search for the next head coach for our football program.

We are very appreciative of the job Bob and his staff did both on and off the field during their four and half seasons. We are grateful that Coach Hutson and his staff will ensure that our program can continue to move forward without interruption for the next six games. There is still a lot of football left to play and we believe this will give our football student-athletes the best chance to compete effectively for the remainder of the season.

Last spring, we outlined our vision for Tulane Football. These goals will not be met overnight but rest assured that we will continue to provide the conditions necessary to achieve them. We expect our program to compete annually for conference championships and post-season play and recent events have only served to strengthen that resolve. Now that we have fully recovered financially from Hurricane Katrina, we are providing increased support to the athletics department for salaries, administrative expenses and academic support. Finally, we are also making substantial progress in planning and fundraising for a new stadium to house the Green Wave. We look forward to working with the next head coach to ensure his success.

This is a critical time for our football program and it will take a collective effort on behalf of the administration, coaches, student-athletes as well as the fan base to bring our program to the level we desire.

Thank you for your continued support of Green Wave Football. It is time for all of us to stand together as one Tulane Family. We look forward to seeing all of you at the Homecoming game this Saturday.

Roll Wave!
