Tulane redshirt junior RB Sherman Badie (groin) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Louisiana-Lafayette.

Not only will Badie sit out Saturday's game against Louisiana-Lafayette, HC Willie Taggart indicated that he will miss "at least a few weeks." The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder suffered a groin injury against Southern in Week 2. Despite a bye last weekend, he has been unable to heal up sufficiently. This season, he has rushed for 66 yards on 12 carries.

Tulane junior RB Dontrell Hilliard rushed for 97 yard and a touchdown on 16 carries in Saturday's 21-14 loss to Navy.

Hilliard rocked and rolled for a 36-yard scoring run with 26 seconds remaining in the third quarter. That gave the Green Wave a 14-13 lead heading into the fourth, but Navy would top them with a touchdown in the final quarter, one which they were unable to answer. After rushing for just 36 yards in a season-opening loss to Wake Forest, the 6-foot, 185-pound Hilliard has racked up an even 200 yards over the last two games. He will try to keep it rolling against Louisiana-Monroe next Saturday.

Tulane senior DT Tanzel Smart's "quickness, change of direction and ability to get leverage on opponents is impressive," notes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Tulane held the Deacs to 175 yards of offense over the weekend, with Smart a big reason why, "omnipresent and tough to stop all evening," Pauline wrote. Smart totaled four tackles, two tackles for loss and a sack. He's a sleeper interior prospect to monitor.

Tulane named redshirt sophomore QB Glen Cuiellette the starter for 2016.

In naming him the starter, Green Wave HC Willie Fritz cited Cuiellette's experience and "command of the offense." For his part, the 6-foot, 215-pound Cuiellette explained that "[t]here's a slight relief [to being named the starter], but overall the way I feel is that this is just the beginning." While he appeared in just one game last season and did not attempt a pass, ESPN graded him as a three-star recruit for the 2014 cycle.

Tulane dismissed redshirt junior S Leonard Davis.

It is not yet known what Davis did to earn the dismissal, but he won't be suiting up for the Green Wave this season. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder redshirted last season due to academic issues. In 2014, he recorded 15 tackles and 0.5 sacks. While these are modest enough numbers, Davis was expected to start at strong safety this coming season. Sophomore Roderic Teamer and true freshman Sean Harper figure to draw increased reps in camp as HC Willie Fritz tries to cover for Davis' dismissal.

Tulane junior RB Dontrell Hilliard was named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List.

As a sophomore, Hilliard rushed 115 times for 646 yards (5.6 ypc) and six touchdowns. He added 23 catches for 267 yards (11.6 ypr) and one score. With Willie Fritz and his powerful triple-option attack coming to town, the 6-foot, 185-pound Hilliard is a lock to improve on those numbers.

The Baton Rouge Advocate's Guerry Smith reports that Tulane has dismissed redshirt freshman RB Nigel Anderson.

Smith's little birdies told him that Anderson was hit with a dismissal, but no specific reason for his exit is known at this time. The 5-foot-10, 187-pounder was a consensus three-star recruit coming out of East St. John High in Louisiana. Now no longer with the Green Wave program, Anderson's future plans should come to light over the proceeding days and weeks.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt noted that Tulane T Arturo Uzdavinis "might need time to develop in the NFL."

Brandt came away impressed with the athleticism Uzdavinis showcased on his Pro Day, specifically singling out the 6-foot-4, 316-pounder's 35-inch vertical jump as evidence of the big man's more explosive traits. Over the summer, colleague Chad Reuter wrote that Uzdavinis has the "size, agility and willingness to finish blocks" that might tempt scouts. Despite this, Uzdavinis did not earn an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine.

Tulane announced the hiring of RB coach Jamaal Fobbs and three others.

In addition to Fobbs, Slade Nagle's being brought on as TE coach, Jeff Conway as WR coach and Chris Hampton as DB coach. While Conway's been working as co-OC (among other duties) at Texas State for the past four years, Fobbs, Nagle and Hampton all come to the Green Wave from the FCS.
Mar 14 - 1:09 PM

Tulane redshirt junior WR Devon Breaux has left the football team to focus on track and field.

Breaux finished the 2015 campaign having caught 25 passes for 431 yards and three touchdowns. He was Tulane's No. 2 wideout, but they'll have to look elsewhere for production in 2016. Said the 6-foot, 181-pound redshirt junior, "I want to announce that I'll be graduating this semester & I will not be returning to play football next year. I will be pursuing my Track & Field career for the next two years." Breaux won the AAC long jump in 2015.
Jan 9 - 5:35 PM

Tulane hired Georgia Southern's Willie Fritz as head coach.

Very astute hire by the Tulane brass here. We were a little surprised that lower-tier Power 5 schools with openings -- Iowa State, for instance -- didn't give the 55-year-old Fritz a look. He's gone 9-3 in consecutive seasons and won the Sun Belt Conference title and was the league's coach of the year in 2014. Fritz also directed a powerhouse at Sam Houston State, accruing a 40-15 record. He brings to the Green Wave a triple-option attack that is very difficult to slow down. He'll need a few years to get system fits into New Orleans. Once he does, the sleeping giant that is Tulane may wake up and contend for a title in the American Athletic Conference.

Tulane has fired HC Curtis Johnson.

Tulane finished the 2015 campaign 3-9 under Johnson's watch. It was his third losing season in four years. He finishes his Green Wave career holding a tough 15-34 record. Before finding a new head coach, the school indicated in a statement that they'll first have to secure a shiny new athletic director. Current AD Rick Dickson has already announced that he will be stepping aside in 2016.

Tulane sophomore RB Dontrell Hilliard rushed for 97 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries in Saturday's 41-13 loss to Memphis.

Hilliard scored touchdowns in each of the first two quarters before quieting. While he was efficient and productive against Memphis, he's rushed for just 389 yards and six touchdowns through eight games. There's not much to love for daily fantasy leagues here.

Tulane sophomore RB Dontrell Hilliard carried the ball 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 42-7 loss to Houston.

In Friday's loss to Houston, Tulane had just 150 yards passing and 112 yards rushing as a team. Hilliard scored the squad's lone touchdown when he punched it in from three yards out in the second quarter. Through six contests, the 6-foot, 185-pound sophomore's compiled 241 rushing yards while scoring three touchdowns. He's logged just one game north of 100 yards rushing and can be safely avoided in DFS play.

Tulane senior T Arturo Uzdavinis will "impress scouts and draft followers alike with his size, agility and willingness to finish blocks," believes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

"If he tests as well as I expect after the season, there's no reason he can't be a top-100 pick," Reuter wrote. The 6-foot-7, 304-pounder is entering his third year as starter at left tackle for the Green Wave.
