Doug Aucoin enters his 16th 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 was recently honored as the 2011 SEC Video Coordinator of the Year by his peers, the fourth time that he's earned the award. Aucoin was also named the 2010 Bob Matey National Video Coordinator of the Year by the Collegiate Sports Video Association. The award, which is voted on by other video coordinators in the profession, is presented to the individual who possesses the qualities and attributes of the late Bob Matey, the former video coordinator at Texas A&M.
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.
