Deggs to be announced as Ragin Cajuns next head baseball coach Thursday

BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -- Multiple reports are pointing toward Matt Deggs leaving Sam Houson State after five seasons to become the next head baseball coach at the University of Louisiana - Lafayette.

Deggs returned to college baseball in 2013 with Tony Robichaux and the Ragin Cajuns. He said earlier this month after Coach Robe unexpectedly passed away that the beloved Cajuns head coach saved his life when
Robichaux gave him a second chance.

A press conference is scheduled Thursday at 11am to announce Deggs as the Cajuns next head baseball coach.
