Why didnt LSU just hire Arnsparger as the AD instead of letting him go to Florida in that same capacity?
Hadnt Broadhead been forced out as AD at that point?
Yes, Broadhead was gone. Part of the reason was Dale Brown did not want the Football Coach to be AD and he had a lot of political allies. Notice Joe Dean's background.
Some one mentioned Broadhead bringing the circus. Yeah the events surrounding his dismissal was a cluster frick. But he was a freaking visionary. Way ahead of his time with stuff like in stadium ads, PPV, TigerVision, season ticket seat donations. Oh and he hired some damn good coaches: Skip Bertman, Pat Henry and Sue Gunter.
ETA: All LSU fans should read Broadhead's book. Sure its one sided, but still pretty eye opening.
