Louisiana Tech is moving on from Skip Holtz after nine seasons as the Bulldogs' head football coach. The university announced Friday that Holtz, the son of legendary former Notre Dame head coach Lou Holtz, will coach in his final game Saturday at Rice. He is 64-49 since taking over in 2013.

"Skip and I talked and agreed it was time for a change for both parties," said Louisiana Tech athletic director Eric Wood, who did not name an interim head coach. "Louisiana Tech owes Skip a debt of gratitude for his loyalty and dedication to our football student-athletes, our University, and our community over the past decade.

"He has been able to accomplish some things that weren't previously done here on a consistent basis prior to his arrival. We continue to be committed to winning conference championships, and that expectation is stronger than ever."
