Stephen "Tank" Lotief is the next head football coach at Breaux Bridge, he confirmed Tuesday.

Lotief recorded a 92-42 record at Kaplan, leading the team to three-straight 3A semifinal games before parting ways this winter. He remains a teacher at Kaplan, but was relieved of his coaching duties in March. Breaux Bridge has a postseason appearance streak dating back more than 20-years. Lotief said he looks forward to building on that.

"I look forward to carrying on the winning traditions at Breuax Bridge," he said in a text. "I will try my best. Nobody will outwork us."

Lotief replaces Chad Pourciau who stepped down from the position after spending seven years at the school. Pourciau coached both basketball and football, a run that included a 2018 4A basketball championship.
