WGSO: LSU to hire Trent Johnson as basketball coach

by Nathan Stubbs

This morning, radio station WGSO of New Orleans is reporting that LSU is poised to introduce Stanford’s Trent Johnson as its next men’s basketball coach. Johnson compiled a 81-48 record in four seasons at Stanford with three NCAA tournament appearances, including this year’s trip to the Sweet 16. A California native, and graduate of Boise State, Johnson will become the first ever African-American head coach of LSU men’s basketball. Johnson replaces John Brady, who was fired by LSU in February.
