Sources: Herb Vincent to leave LSU for position with SEC

Taking a position with the SEC. Hate to see him go, he did a great job here.

LINK

quote:

The Southeastern Conference announced today that Herb Vincent has been hired as Associate Commissioner for Communications for the conference
.

quote:

"Herb Vincent has served Louisiana State University magnificently,” Interim LSU President Dr. William Jenkins said. “I deeply regret losing him to the Southeastern Conference and I will miss him greatly. But this is a wonderful opportunity for him moving forward. He’s been superb. He is competent in every respect and has been responsive to our needs. We could not have had a more effective leader of our Communications and University Relations program. He could not have done more through some difficult times for this University and he was more than willing to handle whatever came up whether it was day or night. We wish him nothing but the best.”


quote:

"Herb’s contributions to LSU and his role in the accomplishments of the athletic department have been tremendous,” LSU Vice-Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva said. “He’s been a great representative of LSU and we appreciate all that he’s done for this university. We wish him well on his new opportunity at the league office.”



quote:

“I am excited to join the SEC at a time when significant changes are taking place in college athletics,” Vincent said. “The level of excellence throughout the SEC is unparalleled and I am looking forward to working with the league staff and the 14 member institutions in continuing to build and promote the SEC brand.”

Damn, what a loss for LSU. A truly nice guy that represented LSU well. Hopefully he will be in a position to immediately fire the a-hole Gumptard that screwed us on the scheduling.

One of the finest men I have ever known. Truly a gentlemen. Naming your first born boy after him should be the law.

I like Herb but his decision to alter the images of the group of students that painted crosses on their bodies is something I and many others were angry about and I wanted him to resign over such an egregious decision.

Holy shite. You are usually a good poster but that is just fricking idiotic. Was it a mistake? Maybe. But a good man that is good at his job to resign over it? Give me a break.

He'll be back. Did this back in the 90's to get experience outside LSU

He'll come back as AD or some capacity when Alleva kicks it

I hope so. He was a credit to the athletic dept. Always responsive and level-headed to anyone who had a question, complaint, etc. I wish him the best.

What a huge loss for LSU and for us fans. Herb has always been politely and quickly responsive to my own emails, and I know to others, and having met him I came away impressed with his approach to his job and to random people like me.

I hope LSU has someone in his mold to replace him.

And I also hope he makes a favorable difference in that crimSon athlEtic offiCe over in Alabama. If he could have gone anywhere, that is a great place for him and for us because I cant imagine a better representative of LSU.

One of the best decisions he made while at LSU was to alter the photo with the students and the crosses on their chests. Hate t see him go.
