Roy Roundtree

LAKE CHARLES – McNeese football head coach Gary Goff as announced the addition of Roy Roundtree to his coaching staff as the Cowboys’ wide receiver coach.

Roundtree comes to McNeese after spending the last two seasons at Grand Valley State where his wide receiving corps combined to haul in 288 passes for 4,223 yards and 34 touchdowns in the two seasons combined.

The Lakers compiled a 22-3 record in his two seasons on staff and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Division II playoffs both years.

“I am very excited about the addition of Roy to our staff,” said Goff. “Roy has had a very successful playing and coaching career and he’ll bring experience and enthusiasm to the receiver room.”

In 2022, he helped lead the Lakers to a perfect 11-0 regular season record and No. 1 national ranking as the offense averaged 461 yards per game to rank 11th nationally. GV also ranked No. 9 in the NCAA in first downs and scored 52 times in 60 attempts in the red zone with 47 scores going for touchdowns.

Prior to his arrival at Grand Valley State, Roundtree spent two years on Jim Harbaugh’s staff at Michigan where he assisted with all facets of the wide receiver position including game plan installments, individual drill work, passing game coordination, opponent film breakdown, defensive scout team organization, and was responsible for special team duties for the punt and kick returns. He tutored the likes of Donovan People-Jones, Nico Collins and Ronnie Bell to All-Big Ten Conference honors during the 2019 campaign.

In 2017, he coached receivers at Indiana State, was wide receiver coach at Limestone in 2016, and in 2015, coached at Colorado State-Pueblo.

Roundtree turned in an outstanding playing career at Michigan, hauling in 154 passes for 2,304 yards and 15 touchdowns in 50 career games played. He started 37 consecutive games during his career, tallied career-highs in receptions (72), yards (935) and touchdown catches (7) as a sophomore in 2010. He also set the Michigan single-game record for receiving yards in a game (246) versus Illinois on nine receptions during the 2010 season.

He was a CollegeFootballNews.com and Sporting News Freshman All-American, while also being selected a two-time All-Big Ten performer during his time with the Wolverines.

A native of Trotwood, Ohio, Roundtree is a graduate of the University of Michigan.
