Since Bubba and Rossetta are the only two guys that bother to cover LSU basketball quickly...

quote:

LSU losing Robert Kirby to Memphis is bad, but he has underwhelmed in recruiting. His signature signee: Corban Collins, who is transferring.

Glynn Cyprien (A&M) will likely get a call from LSU, along with Mike Sanders (Utah Jazz), a former high school teammate of Johnny Jones

Other possible candidates: former LSU players Randy Livingston (former D-League head coach) & Chico Potts (current Miss. Valley head coach)


All from Bubba's twitter.

They are now reporting he has accepted the position.

Can someone explain to me why this guy would leave LSU for Memphis? Is it money?

Multiple factors some we as fans can only speculate on:
1) He is originally from Memphis
2) Pastner could have ponied up big buck$ to get Kirby because multiple LSU targets are Memphis/TN recruits- Roby, Lindsey, Hymon, and Black, so Memphis just got another advantage with these guys.
3) Assistant coaches are always looking for that next stepping stone to get that head job somewhere, while we as loyal LSU fans could never understand or accept it, in the past decade Memphis has been the better program and more noticed nationally.
4) Kirby was first chair at LSU so....

All in all I cannot say he made a bad decision it was a chance for him to return home and for Memphis they get new connections with some prized Memphis guys.

Liked Sanders when we were trying to fill the staff last year, he has an impressive resume.

How is cyprien so highly regarded nationally? He was on Gillespie staff at uk and the current A&M staff. Both didn't do well.

Plus Memphis has been to the dance more than a few times the last ten years. Its all about the now and now, they are higher profile in basketball than LSU.
