Tulane hires new secondary coach

Tulane has hired Tom Hayes as the Green Wave’s secondary coach.

Hayes replaces Greg Jackson, who resigned his coaching position earlier this month to accept a similar role at Wisconsin.

“I’ve known and been friends with Tom for about 30 years and we’ve coached against each other at times and we served on the same staff at Texas A&M,” Tulane coach Bob Toledo said. “He brings experience and knowledge to our staff. I think he’ll do a great job of helping us to get better. “

Hayes bring 28 years of NFL and collegiate experience to the Green Wave and most recently he served as the defensive backs coach for the New Orleans Saints during the 2006 and 2007 seasons.

Hayes also coached at UCLA, Texas A&M and Oklahoma and helped those teams to a combined 13 bowl appearances. Hayes also had stints at Stanford and Kansas.
