Huard played college football for the University of Maine Black Bears from 1963–1966. He was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the fifth round of the 1967 American Football League Draft. He played three seasons for the Broncos before sitting out the 1970 NFL season. In 1971 he returned to the NFL for the New Orleans Saints. After missing all of the 1972, Huard signed a five-year contract with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes. He was waived during the 1973 CFL season and claimed by the Toronto Argonauts. He remained in Toronto until his retirement in 1975.
In 2003 Huard was the first player inducted into the "Ring of Honor" at Fitzpatrick Stadium
Coaching career Edit
Before the 1984 season he was hired by J.I. Albrecht to coach the Atlantic Schooners expansion franchise. However, the team never played a game and Huard remained at Acadia for one more season before becoming the special teams coach of the USFL's Chicago Blitz. In 1987, Huard was hired as Head Coach of the Maine Maritime Academy.
Huard coached the Mariners until 1994 when he was hired by former boss J. I. Albrecht to coach the CFL's expansion Shreveport Pirates. That June he was fired by Pirates President Lonie Glieberman and replaced by SMU Athletic Director Forrest Gregg before coaching a single game. Huard and Albrecht later sued the Pirates. Quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver and the City of Shreveport also brought legal action against the team in separate suits. He then served on the coaching staff at Maine's Kents Hill School.
In 2000 he was hired by Albrecht again, this time as head coach of the Toronto Argonauts. His tenure lasted eight games with a record of 1–6–1. He resigned after a 51–4 home loss to the British Columbia Lions. 
Huard is now the CEO of Northeast Turf in South Portland, Maine and the Northeast representative of FieldTurf. He has donated turf to Acadia University's Raymond Field and UMaine's Mahaney Dome. He oversaw the installation of FieldTurf at Gillette Stadium during the 2006 NFL season.
