LUTCHER, LA (WAFB) - Longtime Lutcher football coach Tim Detillier is going out on top, telling WAFB 9Sports he is retiring from coaching after 25 seasons on the sidelines at his alma mater.
Detillier said he told his team Thursday afternoon as the Bulldogs were planning a celebration for their 2015 LHSAA Class 3A championship.
After a six-year stint as the head coach at St. Charles Catholic, Detillier spent the rest of his 31 years earning 266 career wins and 112 losses at Lutcher, where he led the Bulldogs to four state championships in four Superdome appearances. Lutcher also won state titles under Detillier's direction in 2003, 2006 and 2008.
Detillier said he's finally decided he wants his weekends off to spend time with his family and grandchildren in Texas.
Among the players Detillier coached at Lutcher are Miami Dolphins' record-setting receiver Jarvis Landry and former WAFB Warrick Dunn Award winner Blaine Gautier, who was a record-breaking quarterback for UL-Lafayette's Ragin Cajuns from 2009 to 2012. Gautier won Sportsline Player of the Year in 2007.
