UL LAFAYETTE – A new line of limited-edition merchandise honors a Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns icon.
The 36 Collection: Coach Robichaux Legacy Line includes men’s and women’s apparel, hats and other items. Each product features a commemorative logo that combines the No. 36 and the signature of longtime University of Louisiana at Lafayette head baseball coach Tony Robichaux.
Robichaux, one of the most successful coaches in the history of Ragin’ Cajuns Athletics, died July 3, 2019. He secured more than 900 wins in his quarter-century career at UL Lafayette, the most of any coach in the baseball program’s history
Robichaux’s uniform number was 36 throughout his tenure, noted Leslie Saloom, UL Lafayette’s associate director of trademark licensing.
“Following Coach Robichaux’s death, 36 emerged as a symbol of his contributions to the University, to the athletics program and to the community beyond campus. It was only natural then for the collection to carry this number as an immediately recognizable tribute to him and his legacy,” Saloom said.
The product line is a collaboration between the University and the Robichaux family.
