Lafayette promoted defensive coordinator Eric Shaw to head football coach Saturday.
Shaw replaces Carl Hayden, who stepped down last week after going 23-14 in three seasons with the Generals.
Shaw has been on Lafayette's coaching staff for the last 12 years. Shaw, 41, played collegiately at Louisiana Tech and played three seasons at linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals.
