Michael Desormeaux Salary, Contract, Net Worth, and More

    Louisiana head coach Michael Desormeaux has maintained good performances from his team over the last two years, and he's looking to build on his success in 2023.

    After six years of being an assistant coach for the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns, Michael Desormeaux took over as the head coach starting in their bowl game at the end of the 2021 season. Now entering his second full season as head coach, Desormeaux looks to continue Billy Napier’s previous success.

    Let’s look at his contract with the program this year and beyond.
