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.
