Can LSU Basketball Coach Will Wade Survive the Scandal? [VIDEO]
Roy Lang from The Times talks with 101.7 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright about the growing scandal involving LSU basketball coach Will Wade and whether the man leading the Tigers cagers can hold on to his job.
Lang reviews the Wade situation, including the the telephone conversations between the coach and would-be agent Christian Dawkins - taped by the FBI - in which the two discussed "deals" to get top players to LSU.
Some of the conversations involved Tigers' guard Javonte Smart, who was being recruited at the time. From si.com:
"The 2017 phone call reportedly included Wade being upset over a third party involved with the recruitment not having accepted his "offer" yet. Wade suggested that a player's verbal committment had been delayed because they weren't offered a big "enough piece of the pie in the deal" that allegedly favored the player and his mother, reports Yahoo Sports.'
"I was thinking last night on this Smart thing," Wade told Dawkins, "I’ll be honest with you, I’m [expletive] tired of dealing with the thing. Like I’m just [expletive] sick of dealing with the [expletive]. Like, this should not be that [expletive] complicated."
