Doug Aucoin

Video Coordinator

Doug Aucoin enters his 13th season as LSU’s video coordinator. During that time he has developed LSU’s football video department into the one of the finest in the nation.

Aucoin, who has twice been named the SEC Video Coordinator of the Year (2000 and 2007) by his peers, oversees LSU’s multi-million dollar video department that rivals that of most NFL teams. Following the 2007 season, Aucoin was named a finalist for National Video Coordinator of the Year.

Aucoin, who joined the Tigers in 1997 after a stint with Tulane, is responsible for analytical support of computer and video technologies including the taping of games and practices, opponent video exchange, self-scout and opponent breakdowns, and tape cut-ups used as a teaching tool.

Aucoin also manages the computer network that the football coaches use for statistical analysis as well as self-scouting and the scouting of opponents. Another of Aucoin’s responsibilities is the production of a weekly highlight and motivational video for the football team.

Aucoin oversees a staff of eight people, which includes one full-time assistant, one graduate assistant and six student assistants.

Prior to working for Tulane, Aucoin was employed by the New Orleans Saints as an assistant to his brother, Albert, who was video director for the Saints. Their father, Erby, is a member of the Saints Hall of Fame for his pioneering analytical film work in the early years of the National Football League.

A native of New Orleans, Aucoin graduated from Riverdale High School and the University of New Orleans, earning his degree in business administration in 1995. In the summer of 1998, Aucoin married the former Angela Bordelon and the couple has three children, Ryan, Shane and Chanler.

Brad Mendow
Assistant Video Coordinator

Brad Mendow enters his fifth year as LSU’s assistant video coordinator. Prior to his appointment as a full-time employee, the Covington, La., native spent five years as a student worker with the LSU video staff.

Mendow assists videographer director Doug Aucoin with the day-to-day video operations and the maintenance of the coaching staff’s computer network for the LSU’s football program. He also serves as the SEC’s Instant Replay Technician for all of LSU’s home football games.

A 2004 LSU graduate with a degree in business administration, Mendow has three older brothers who worked as equipment managers or videographers for the LSU football team, and has a younger brother that currently works for him in the video department.
