Lamar Head Coach Steve Roccaforte Fired After Five Year Run
Roccaforte spent five years as the man in charge at Lamar and following a 13-17 season overall this past year, his tenure has come to an end.
Roccaforte guided Lamar to only one winning season, which came back during the 2008-2009 season. In that season, Lamar finished 19-11 overall with a 13-3 mark within the conference. That mark earned the school’s first Southland Conference regular season championship since 1983-1984.
Roccaforte succeeded former head coach Billy Tubbs prior to the 2006-2007 season, guiding Lamar to a 15-17 record in his first year.
The Cardinals’ 13-17 season this year marked their third consecutive losing season.
Roccaforte was 76-78 during his five seasons at the helm.
