BATON ROUGE, La. -- Barely two years removed from a Final Four appearance but now sporting the worst record in the SEC, LSU has parted ways with head coach John Brady.
Brady's firing was first reported by several Baton Rouge media outlets on Friday morning and later confirmed by LSU spokesman Kent Lowe. Brady will be allowed to coach the Tigers on Saturday against No. 7 Tennessee before handing the reins to assistant Butch Pierre for the remainder of the season.
LSU has called a 2 p.m. ET news conference, at which time it said it would explain its decision to let Brady coach one more game.
The Tigers are 8-13 overall, 1-6 in the SEC West, and have lost 17 of their last 23 conference games.
Brady, 53, has been the coach at LSU since the 1997-1998 season. He won the SEC championship in 2006. Brady's record this season is 8-13.
