HAMMOND, La. (AP) - Southeastern Louisiana University says its next football coach will be Ron Roberts, who guided Delta State University to four Gulf South Conference championships and four appearances in the NCAA Division II playoffs.

The University of Louisiana Board of Supervisors must approve the appointment.

In five years under Roberts, the Statesmen are 47-16, with two of those losses in the 2010 NCAA Division II national championship and the 2011 semifinals.

Roberts is 44. He's from Visalia, Calif. He was Delta State's defensive coordinator for two years and became coach in 2007.

He also has worked at Mount Whitney (Calif.) High School, Texas State, Tusculum College in Greeneville, Tenn., Greensboro College, Burroughs High School in California and Houston High School in Germantown, Tenn., his wife's home town.
