Sulphur hires Zachary's Jesse Cassard to lead baseball program

SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - It's a homecoming of sorts for Jesse Cassard, as the Zachary baseball coach has accepted the baseball head coaching job at Sulphur High School.

Cassard has spent the past 10 seasons with the Broncos where he compiled a 261-112 record, winning three consecutive state titles in Class 4A from 2007-09. Zachary also won seven district titles under his watch, including the district 4-5A title in 2016. He also served as the school's athletic director.

Cassard's ties to Southwest Louisiana come from his college career at McNeese from 2000-2001, and his stop at Golden Tor rival Barbe High School. Cassard was an assistant coach under Bucs Coach Glenn Cecchini from 2002-2006.
