GRAMBLING, La (GSU Athletics) - Grambling State University head football coach Broderick Fobbs adds another valuable coach to his coaching staff with the hire of Bryant Ross as the new offensive lineman coach. 

Ross is a native of Atlanta, Georgia and he transitions to Grambling from the University of Louisiana where he served as the assistant offensive lineman coach under head coach Billy Napier for the past two years. “Coach Ross is a very energetic and detailed individual,” head coach Broderick Fobbs said. “He was very impressive in the interview process and I look forward to working with him.” 

During his tenure with the Ragin Cajuns, the offense set school records in rushing. In 2020, four out of the five offensive linemen received Sun Belt postseason honors, and also was a finalist for the Joe Moore Award given to the nation’s top offensive line over the three years he was on staff.

Ross was also a part of a program that made the Sunbelt Conference Championship since his arrival finishing with a record of 28-11 in three years and 21-4 in the last two years. He was a part of a unit that ranked in the top 10 in college football rushing in the last two years and set a school-record winning more than ten games in the last two years.

Prior to the University of Louisiana, Ross was an offensive line graduate assistant at Mississippi State under head coach Dan Mullen in 2017. From 2014-2016 he also served as the run game coordinator and offensive lineman coach at Central State University. 

Ross played high school football at Booker T. Washington. After graduation, he attended West Hills Community College for two years and transferred to Alabama A&M University to finish his collegiate career.
