Tulane to Kick Off 2016 Football Season with New Head Coach
Owner of the Arata Law Offices, attorney William “Bill” Arata handles insurance disputes through his firm in Bogalusa, Louisiana. In his spare time, Bill Arata enjoys cheering on his home football team, the Tulane University Green Wave.
The Tulane University football team will open its 2016 season against Wake Forest University in North Carolina. The news was released on the Tulane Athletics website in May. The team will be led by experienced head coach Willie Fritz, who joined the school at the end of 2015. His history of rebuilding football programs as well as ensuring the academic and competitive success of his players, will be a valuable asset to the Green Wave, according to the university’s director of athletics.
The Green Wave and Demon Deacons have played twice against each other to date, with Tulane emerging victorious in both meetings. Their last matchup took place in 1995 at the Superdome, and Tulane won by 26 points. The upcoming game will be televised on ESPN3 on Thursday, September 1.
