Brady was informed of the decision to remove him from the head coaching position by Bertman on Thursday.
"We thank John Brady for his years of service and the success he brought to the LSU basketball program during the course of his time here," Bertman said. "He brought some great players to LSU and produced some very successful teams and those memories will forever be written in the history of LSU basketball."
Brady came to LSU beginning with the 1997-98 season and posted a record of 192-139. In 11 years at the helm of the Tiger basketball program Brady led LSU to three SEC Western Division titles (2000, 2005, 2006), two SEC Championships (2000, 2006), two NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearances and a Final Four appearance in 2006. Four of his players earned SEC Freshman of the Year honors and three players were named SEC Player of the Year. He was named SEC Coach of the Year in 2000 and 2006.
JOHN BRADY QUOTES
"I agree with coach (Skip) Bertman – I am not a quitter. I am too competitive to do that. I understand decisions are made and you have to respect the people that make those decisions. You don't always have to agree with them, but you can certainly respect them. I have always seen friends of mine who are in this situation and I have always tried to be supportive of coaches who were in this situation. It does flash in your mind at times, if it does happen to you, how would you respond? I want to do everything in my power to respond in the right way."
