Now that both teams have arrived, the week is primed for a series of exciting pre-game activities. We took some time to speak with each team’s head coach during the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl Media Day. Check out the interviews below.

Appalachian State Head Coach Shawn Clark


Shawn is hoping to lead the Mountaineers to their second straight New Orleans Bowl win. To engage more with the Mountaineers’ head coach, tweet @coach_sclark

University of Alabama at Birmingham Head Coach Bill Clark

App. State Defensive Back Josh Thomas

If you watched Bill Clark’s video, you know New Orleans is serving up a feast down south and his team is making short work of the shrimp.
