Van Chancellor?

Normally, having the chance to interivew a Hall of Fame basketball coach for a vacant head coaching position would be considered a no-brainer, a slam dunk.

Then again, Van Chancellor is in his 60s.

Which leads to this question, if LSU hires Chancellor would the school be hiring him for a chance to win a national championship next season at the expense of the future. Because you would have to figure that Chancellor doesn't have too many years left in him.

But Chancellor may give LSU its best chance of winning a women's basketball national championship next year.

It presents an interesting dilemma to the LSU administration. Go for the quick fix or go for something less proven and younger?

Yo, the theory is that he will bring Cynthia Cooper with him as his assistant, presumably to replace him in a few years. She's a former WNBA star, has had success with a Prairie View program that NO history and has both the energy and reputation to help with recruiting.

Oh come on...The saying now is 50 is the new 30, so 60 must be the new 40. With that said, this guy is here for the long haul. He has the experience that it takes to keep a good program going AND making it better. My bet is this guy is going to push LSU over the top and replace Tennessee as the next dynasty!
