John Brady's teams had underperformed at LSU, especially post-Big Baby Glen Davis and Tyrus Thomas, and the fans had been calling for his job for a while now. According to ESPN, he'll coach Saturday's game and hand the job over to assistant Butch Pierre on an interim basis. His 10-year tenure is over. Possible replacements are listed by both foxsports and cbssportsline as:
- VCU's Anthony Grant (the hot coach of the season, along with Sean Miller)
- Ole Miss' Andy Kennedy (can he switch jobs in conference? Isn't there a rule against that?),
- and USC's Tim Floyd (who has roots in New Orleans, but why would he leave LA).
I like Jeff Goodman, but this post seems a little harsh on the man.
Then again, apparently John Brady used a bottle rocket to crash the Hindenburg, so maybe it's deserving. The people at the Fire John Brady website obviously think so.
