Trent Johnson to LSU
WGSO AM out of New Orleans (Slidell…whatever) is reporting that LSU is set to hire Stanford head coach Trent Johnson as their new basketball coach. Johnson, a Boise State grad, had been the head coach for the Cardinal since 2004, leading Stanford to the Sweet 16 this year. Johnson will become the first african-american men’s head basketball coach in school history.
Editors aside: We once saw Johnson, when he was the head coach at Nevada, tell a guy in the stands who was berating him, to “sit down you fat fuck”. We are a fan.
