Former Louisiana State University offensive assistant Adam Froman has been hired as the new quarterbacks coach for the Valdosta State football team.
The 25-year old replaces Northwestern State (La.) offensive coordinator Robby Brown, who left the Blazers a couple weeks following the national championship victory.
Head Coach David Dean announced the news on Tuesday.
“Adam brings a lot of experience and different idea from all of the places he has been,” Dean said in a press release. “He is a good technician when it comes to teaching the game and will provide us with new ideas as we move forward with our quarterbacks in particular and offense in general.”
Despite being one of the youngest coaches on staff, Froman brings an abundance of knowledge at the position he will supervise for the Blazers.
The former University of Louisville quarterback was a standout at Santa Rosa (Calif.) Junior College before transferring to LU.
In 2008, he earned player of the year honors in his last JUCO season recording 3,876 passing yards and 40 touchdowns.
Froman’s two seasons as a Cardinal were plagued by injuries yet finished with 2,987 passing yards and 17 touchdowns in 17 games.
The Atlanta Falcons signed Froman in 2011 but was unable to make the final roster before the start of the regular season.
His final playing days were in 2012 for the Arena Football League’s Spokane Shock and Canadian Football League’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
