Le’Marcus Gibson has been named defensive coordinator of the Holmes Community College football team.
Gibson became the associate head coach for the Holmes Bulldogs in 2019 after coaching at Panhandle State University. He also coached at Nicholls State University and Grambling State University as a graduate assistant.
Gibson finished his playing career at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette in 2012 before heading to Grambling to coach. The decision was easy for head coach Raymond Gross to promote Gibson due to his hard work and dedication to football.
“I am extremely honored and blessed to have coach Gross and Holmes Community College administration believe enough in my ability to lead to extend this opportunity to me,” Gibson said in a statement. “I’m more than thankful that I am able to continue being a part of this great program and institution. It was always a dream of mine as a player to run my own defense after playing in multiple defensive schemes in my career.”
“Because there is no place like Holmes, I am fortunate enough to be back home in my home state, and I am a product of this league I’m coaching in,” he added. “It couldn’t be a better fit.”
Holmes CC finished last season with a 4-5 record but are expected to finish stronger this upcoming season under Gross and Gibson’s leadership. The Bulldogs are scheduled to begin the 2020 season on August 27 against Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in Perkinston, Mississippi.
