    Closed sources say DeMoss will be hired by LSU as a highly paid assistant to work with Van C. until he retires 3 or 4 years from now and then take over the LSU program as head coach.

    Sorry to see DeMoss leave. Is it the big difference between the men's basketball coach pay and her pay? Where is the equity? Do we need a new AD? We appreciate you Mickie.
