Tulane defensive coordinator Lance Guidry will become the next defensive coordinator at the University of Miami.

This hiring was confirmed to Geo Milian and LifeWallet Sports by University of Miami Athletic officials.

This news comes only days after former UM defensive coordinator Kevin Steele agreed to a deal to retain the same position at Alabama.

Guidry is considered to be a riser in the coaching world after a successful stint he had at Marshall (2021-22) as the Herd’s defensive coordinator.

In 2022, Marshall ranked first nationally in third-down defense, fifth in rushing yards allowed per game and sixth in points allowed per game. His aggressive brand of defense also showed statistically, as the Herd ranked ninth in the country in both sacks and interceptions forced.

Guidry began his coaching career in 1994 when he was the graduate assistant at McNeese State.

After numerous assistant coaching stops at both the high school and collegiate level, including stints as an interim head coach at both Miami (Ohio) and Western Kentucky, Guidry was named as McNeese State’s head coach in 2016.

He spent three years as the Cowboys’ head coach, leading them to a 21-12 record, including a nine-win season in 2017.

Guidry was announced as Tulane’s defensive coordinator on Jan. 20, 2023, and held the position until joining the Hurricanes’ coaching staff.
