MONROE, La. (AP) — Former University of New Orleans head coach Bruce Peddie has been named an assistant coach at Louisiana-Monroe.
Peddie's appointment is pending approval by the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors.
Head coach Jeff Schexnaider says Peddie joins the Warhawk program after a four-year stint as the head coach at UNO and he owns more than 375 career victories.
During his first year as a head coach, the Privateers secured notable series wins over in-state rivals Tulane and LSU. At the 2010 season's conclusion, Nick Schwaner was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 30th round of the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft after receiving all-Louisiana and all-Region honors.
