Post Pokey Chatman story hits the fan

Thursday March 8, 2007

Newspapers (and other media) get stuff wrong all the time, but it gets your attention when something moves beyond rumor and onto the printed page.

James Varney of Nola.com (the online edition of the New Orleans Times-Picayune) is now reporting a new reason for LSU women’s basketball coach Pokey Chatman’s resignation:

LSU women’s basketball coach Pokey Chatman resigned Wednesday because the university found out about inappropriate conduct between Chatman and one or more players, according to university sources who are aware of the events or have been briefed on it by school officials.

That’s potentially devastating news, not only to Chatman but also to the players who remain. It’s clear that this is a rapidly-developing story and that we’re not close to the end of it yet.
