 In expected news, LSU men’s basketball coach Trent Johnson offically resigned from his position today. Johnson has spent the last 4 years at LSU. He is expected to accept the head coaching job at TCU.

LSU athletic director Joe Alleva released the following statement regarding Johnson’s resignation:

“Sometimes coaching changes work out well for all parties involved, and we will take this opportunity to seek out the best coach for the long-term future of LSU men’s basketball. We will move quickly but deliberately to find a coach who will lead our program with integrity and discipline, someone who will recruit effectively in order to build championship teams while inspiring success in academics, and someone who will energize our fan base. I wish Trent all the best in his new job.”

In his first season, Johnson led the Tigers to a Southeastern Conference title in 2008-09 with an overall record of 27-8 and an SEC mark of 13-3, winning a first round game in the NCAA Tournament.

He would never reach those heights again in Baton Rouge as the Tigers went 11-20 overall (2-14 in the SEC) in 2009-10, 11-21 overall (3-13 in the SEC) in 2010-11 and 18-15 overall (7-9 in the SEC) this past season with a first round loss in the National Invitation Tournament to Oregon.
