LSU Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva is expected to step down from his role as early as to today, according to Bussiness Report.

The report states that Alleva, who has served as LSU's athletic director since 2008, will be replaced by "a nationally recognized leader in university athletics."
quote:

While details of Alleva’s expected departure remain murky, sources say a deal is in the works to replace him with a nationally recognized leader in university athletics. That announcement is also expected in the coming days.

Alleva, 65, came to LSU in 2008 from Duke University, where he had served as athletics director. He succeeded Skip Bertman and was chosen for the position from among four finalists by then-LSU President John Lombardi and Interim Chancellor William Jenkins.

While University officials have not commented on the report, the LSU Board Of Supervisors held an executive committee meeting Tuesday at 4 p.m. to discuss "potential litigation against the University."

Alleva was not present during the meeting, however, LSU President F. King Alexander and general counsel Tom Skinner were involved in the closed-door meeting with the board, according to The Advocate.

I’d be gone too if the sins of others (wade) we’re projected upon me as if I was the douche and if my football coach made 5X what I make. Grand scheme of things, FYI, LSU sports is better across the board than it has been in years.

Lol So u think this is just about Wade and that he should make more than the football coach? Ever heard of market value?

Please! Alleva handling of things has been terrible long before the Wade issue. Rather Wade did commit any crimes, he's back on the job now. In the end, who did it really hurt!? Wade for suspended, essentially, for the tournament! He lost a few checks, but no real money. It hurts the fans and the team's chances of possibly winning it all. He handled the Les Miles situation horribly as well. Alleva was a horrible AD and this move was long overdue!

While I'm glad JA is gone. This is like pissing in the wind with F King still at the helm. Lets not forget F King was behind the Les Miles and Will Wade debacles.

Does this mean an end to all that God-awful piped in music in Tiger Stadium? Bring back the band and the atmosphere.

This. Alleva policies killed TS atmosphere and tail gating.

Aside from athletics, is F. King still a good university president overall? I seriously don't know. Can someone closer to LSU explain?

What we really need is an AD that will take control, not let any scholarly issue get in the way of his job as ATHLETICS Director. Basically tell FKE (and anyone else) “F-off, I got this.”

Slow down guys...everyone jumping to the conclusion that he is getting the shoe because he botched the will wade deal...it’s possible that he’s getting canned because they are pissed that he reinstated will wade.

Why would F King approve Aleva reinstatement then ???
