Louisiana-Monroe is set to hire former Auburn coach Terry Bowden as its next head coach, sources told ESPN on Wednesday.
Bowden, 64, has spent the past two seasons as a graduate assistant at Clemson, where he's pursuing a master's degree. He coached Akron from 2012 to 2018, going 35-52 with two bowl appearances.
Bowden, the son of Hall of Fame coach Bobby Bowden, will replace Matt Viator, fired Dec. 7 after an 0-10 start to the season and a 19-39 record at the school.
Bowden coached Auburn from 1993 to 1998, going undefeated and finishing No. 4 nationally in his first season.
