Hester to be introduced Tuesday as Bulldog coach

Louisiana Tech will hold a press conference Tuesday at noon in the Jarrell Room (team meeting room) of the Davison Athletics Complex to introduce Talvin Hester as the 19th head coach in the history of the Bulldog men’s basketball program.

Hester — who has LA Tech ties — will follow in the footsteps of Eric Konkol, who left to take the Tulsa job last week.

The public is invited and doors will open at 11:30 a.m.  Fans should enter through the east side doors of the Davison Athletics Complex.

Louisiana Tech President Dr. Les Guice and Vice President/Director of Athletics Dr. Eric A. Wood will introduce Hester who brings to Ruston 20 years of coaching experience.  He will be joined by his wife Jamieka and their daughter, Rhyan.

Media is asked to arrive and be set up by 11:45 a.m.  A multbox will be available for media to get audio during the press conference.  No additional mics will be allowed on the podium.

The press conference will be streamed live on Facebook through the LA Tech Athletics Facebook page.

The Lincoln Parish Journal will provide complete coverage of Hester’s introductory press conference in Wednesday’s edition.
