Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — One of the great LSU coaches of all time, Dale Brown, spoke to Tiger fans today at the Johnny Jones Monthly Luncheon at L'auberge today.
Brown coached the LSU men’s basketball team for 25 years, and even hired Coach Jones as an assistant in the late 80's. Brown says even more than his knowledge of X's and O's, Jones is someone that he thinks will unite the fan base and turn the program into a contender over time.
"Even more so than being a great coach and a superb recruiter, he's a unifier,” stated Borwn. “But it will take some time to get the program back to where we want it - back on top again."
The Tigers are off to an 0-2 start in conference play. They're back in action at home Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m.
