Chatman misconduct pokey sexual All hot sex chat so open
LSU joined Connecticut as the only two schools ever to reach five consecutive Final Fours.
On Wednesday, Chatman, who has been at LSU for almost two centuries, first as a point guard and then as an assistant, and now head coach, announced she would be coaching the Lady Tigers in the NCAA tournament and then retiring.
Had Originally Planned on Coaching Through the NCAA Tournament Pokey Chatman, the head coach of the Louisiana State University women's basketball team, announced her resignation on Wednesday under a cloud of mystery.
CHICAGO – After six seasons with the organization, head coach and general manager Pokey Chatman is being let go.
In just their second season of play, the team made it to the AIAW national championship game before losing to top-ranked Delta State, 68-55.
Coleman stepped down in the middle of the 1978-1979 season and was replaced by Barbara Swanner, who in turn led the team for three and a half seasons.
Gunter led the Lady Tigers to 14 NCAA tournament appearances, including one Final Four in her last season as head coach.
(Gunter was unable to be with the team during their run to the Final Four, as she was recovering from an illness and about to retire for health reasons, but was still the official head coach of the team.) Pokey Chatman, who had played for Gunter in the late 1980s and early 1990s and served as an assistant coach since the end of her playing days, was hired to take over for Gunter.
Van Chancellor was hired at the end of the season as a permanent replacement.
Chatman resigned last month after an assistant coach told LSU Pokey had previously had an inappropriate relationship with a former player.
Chatman's lawyer says the coach was rushed into the university one morning, was told she had violated university policy, and was given just two hours to decide if she would resign on her own, or be placed on leave without pay.
Chatman and her lawyer say they only later learned no such policy exists at LSU.
Chatman's attorney is Mary Olive Pierson, a real firecracker of a lawyer, who's been representing Agriculture Commissioner Bob Odom in his money laundering and corruption charges that were recently thrown out of court.
