THIBODAUX, La. — Nicholls State has named Steve Axman as interim head coach for its football program for the remainder of the season.
A search for a permanent head coach will begin immediately.
Axman replaces Charlie Stubbs, who resigned over the weekend due to health concerns. In addition to his head coaching responsibilities, Axman will oversee the quarterbacks and help direct the offense.
Director of Athletics Rob Bernardi says the move gives the program the best opportunity to move forward and have success this season.
Axman’s first game with the Colonels will be Saturday at North Texas.
