LSU Rumor: Chancellor the New Coach?

By Jeff Lippman - March 27, 2007

There is an unconfirmed rumor swirling around that Hall of Fame coach and current broadcaster Van Chancellor, former coach of Mississippi and the Houston Comets in the WNBA, is all set to take the Louisiana State coaching job once the season is over.

LSU's current coach Bob Starkey has no desire to continue as the team's head coach.

The fit for Chancellor would be a perfect one, with the 64-year-old coach getting the itch to return to the sidelines, coupled with the chance to coach one of the game's best in Sylvia Fowles for her senior season.

And with the Tigers making their fourth consecutive trip to the Final Four this season, they will need a big-name coach to take over the program.

The names don't get much bigger than Van Chancellor.

how else is he going to win the national championship?

I was Van Chancellor's assistant his 1st. year at Ole Miss. Most people know about his record but only his players know the family atmosphere that they become a part of with Coach and Mrs. Chancellor. All of his teams become family and not just teammates. If Coach C. is hired at LSU then LSU will increase attendence from Mississippi fans coming to support Coach C.
