TR TV: Brady Addresses Speculation, Future

LSU basketball coach John Brady met with the media Thursday afternoon in a press conference he called late Wednesday evening.

Rumors are swirling throughout the LSU community concerning Brady's future at the university.

Injuries and attrition have decimated the Tigers lineup. LSU is currently in the midst of a seven-game losing streak, which shows no signs of ending anytime soon.

In LSU athletic director Skip Bertman's weekly Cyber-Side Chat he stated earlier Thursday morning, "An evaluation of the men's basketball program will come at the appropriate time, so any speculation now about the future of the program is mere conjecture. What is important is that we throw our full support behind the LSU men's basketball team as they navigate the difficult Southeastern Conference schedule."

Brady, who was accompanied by Tasmin Mitchell, Garrett Temple, Chris Johnson and Alex Farrer, addressed the issues concerning his job at LSU as well as the status of the team. Brady said the best way to avoid failure is "to not give up hope."

The Tigers try to begin digging out of an 0-4 hole in SEC play when they host Arkansas Saturday night at 8 p.m. The game will be broadcast on ESPN Classic.
