LSU Men’s Basketball Coach Trent Johnson Resigns
The LSU athletic program is looking for a new Men’s head basketball coach after Trent Johnson turned in his resignation over the weekend.
Johnson resigns so that he can take another coaching job, LSU announced. Where is he going?
ESPN is reporting that Johnson is leaving LSU for another college gig.
LSU didn’t say where Johnson was headed, but TCU said Sunday that a “major announcement” involving its men’s basketball program would be made during a news conference on the Fort Worth campus Monday afternoon.
Johnson leaves LSU after only 4 seasons. Here is a run down of his history with the university and the basketball program;
Johnson came to LSU in April of 2008 and led the Tigers to a Southeastern Conference title in 2008-09 with an overall record of 27-8 and an SEC mark of 13-3, winning a first round game in the NCAA Tournament. In the seasons that followed, the Tigers went 11-20 overall (2-14 in the SEC) in 2009-10, 11-21 overall (3-13 in the SEC) in 2010-11 and 18-15 overall (7-9 in the SEC) this past season with a first round loss in the National Invitation Tournament.
So what will LSU do know? Stay tuned!
