Coach Gaskamp on Coach Thompson: "Coach Thompson has been instrumental in this transition phase of the football program. It was very obvious to me that the players liked and respected him as a coach and as a person off the field. He coordinated the defense in the spring, and our defensive philosophies are very similar. He is ready to take the next step as a coach and I am very happy to promote him. It was also important to me that he was an alumnus of the school and he understands the commitment and hard work it is going to take to build a consistent winner. Coach Thompson will recruit the state of Oklahoma, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Junior Colleges."
