LSU can't hire former Tiger as student coach
BATON ROUGE, La. -- NCAA rules prohibit LSU from making former Tiger Randy Livingston a student coach, head coach John Brady said.
Livingston, who recently completed an eight-year NBA career, plans return to Baton Rouge to finish his degree at LSU. Livingston expressed an interest in becoming a basketball coach.
But NCAA compliance staff determined that Livingston can't serve as a student coach because the five-year eligibility clock that began when he came to LSU in 1994 has expired.
