Ezil Bibbs out of coaching job

Last week Grambling’s defensive line coach Ezil Bibbs Jr. was released from his duties as a member of Grambling’s football coaching staff. 

Bibbs was in his third season with the Tigers coaching staff. As a result of Bibbs’ successful playing career at Grambling, the New York Giants drafted Bibbs in the eighth round of the 1974 NFL draft.

When asked about Bibbs’ release, GSU’s public relations chief, Will Sutton, commented in an email: “We do not comment on personnel matters.”
