Northwestern State hires Peveto as head coach

NATCHITOCHES, La. -- Northwestern State is turning to a
former assistant coach to turn around its football program.

LSU co-defensive coordinator Bradley Dale Peveto agreed late
Thursday night to become head coach of the Demons, where he was an
assistant from 1996-98. Peveto replaces Scott Stoker, who was
dismissed last month after going 43-38 in seven seasons.

Athletic director Greg Burke will reintroduce Peveto at a news
conference Monday.

Peveto, who has also coached at Houston and Middle Tennessee,
will work with LSU through the Chick-Fil-A Bowl against Georgia
Tech on Dec. 31.
