Grambling_State_University_2013 [1]For the second consecutive day Thursday, Grambling players boycotted football practice. And about the same time that practice was scheduled to be under way, the school announced that interim head coach George Ragsdale had been reassigned within the athletics department.

School spokesman Will Sutton also said defensive coordinator Dennis “Dirt” Winston would replace Ragsdale as interim head coach.

“Ragsdale has been reassigned and to go in another direction at this time, and he’ll be helping in other ways,” Sutton said.

Winston is Grambling’s third coach in five weeks, as Ragsdale ends his short tenure at Grambling with a 0-5 record. He took over for Doug Williams after the legendary coach and former player was fired Sept. 11.
