    LSU coach Chatman announces resignation

    wow suprising news..
    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncw/news/story?id=2791041

    BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU women's basketball coach Pokey Chatman, who took over as head coach in 2004 and twice took the No. 10 Lady Tigers to the Final Four, announced her resignation Wednesday.
    "I have notified the university today that I will step down as head coach of the women's basketball program in order to allow me to pursue other career opportunities," Chatman said in a prepared statement.
    She did not say what those opportunities are. She said she would stay with the team through its run in the upcoming NCAA Tournament and will be under contract until April 30.
    "To eliminate any further distraction from our preparation for and participation in the NCAA Tournament, I will have no further comment and answer no questions on this subject," she added.
    Michael Bonnette, a sports information director at the school, confirmed the resignation and said it was unexpected. "I was stunned," Bonnette said.
    "We respect the decision that Pokey Chatman has made regarding her future career opportunities," athletic director Skip Bertman said in a news release. "On behalf of LSU, I thank her for her athletic accomplishments as a player and as a coach, and for the community service work she has performed for Baton Rouge and Louisiana."

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Not really. They were saying on ESPN al;l week that this would happen. LSU was really falling down the charts.


    Butler loss means that Missouri State lost their NCAA spot.

    LSU has been in the top 10 all season and has been to the Final Four for three or four years straight! If you call that "falling down the charts" then I'd like to see how you define success.

    I live in Baton Rouge and this is a shocker. Some are reporting that this has to do with "inappropriate relationships" with team members. Other reports say she doesn't feel the school is committed to Lady Tiger Basketball and she has a deal to go to Florida as their head coach.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: LSU coach Chatman announces resignation

    This took a turn I wasn't expecting.

    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU women's basketball coach Pokey Chatman said Thursday she won't coach in the NCAA Tournament, and The Times-Picayune of New Orleans reported on its Web site the resignation was prompted by the school's discovery of inappropriate conduct between Chatman and one or more players.

    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    She was hooking up with a former player. Now can you imagine if this would happen with a men's program. I can see the headline.

    Wojo and Coach K hooked up. Coach K resigns. The DA is pressing charges even with no evidence.

    Careful folks,

    ISU had a similar occurrence in the early 90's with the VB program.

    On an aside, "Pokey" Chatman? Oh the jokes.....

    Still wouldn't get the same press as if this was a 'male' coach in a women's program. This would be a much bigger story if that was the case.

    i was not talking about a male coach in a womens program. I was talking about a men's coach in a men's program. HUGE difference.

    You would have expected it had you read my post from yesterday!! See above.

    It has become clear that she was forced to resign. The AD came back from the Men's SEC Tournament in Atlanta unexpectedly and she announces her resignation. She is 90-14 as head coach, has been to three straight Final Fours, and was a great player for LSU in the late 80s / early 90s so they must really have "the goods" on her whatever these "inappropriate relationships" were!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    I wasn't questioning what you were talking about. Just saying there would be all sorts of media coverage on a situation where a male coach had relations with a female player. Just look at what happened to Larry for partying with coeds.

    Re: LSU coach Chatman announces resignation

    This has to be for relationships with current players. No way she gets fired/resigns for being with a former player, that would open LSU up to a slew of lawsuits.

    If the relations were when the former player was on the team, then there are issues.

    Re: LSU coach Chatman announces resignation

    unless the person she was having these allegations with was a current player at the time of it, this is stupid...your personal life is your personal life and not for anyone else's to judge. My guess is that it most be the case, bcuz if they did all of this because of a relationship with a former player AFTER her time at LSU, the school would be in a lot of trouble.
