LSU men’s basketball will reportedly be moving on from head coach Johnny Jones very soon.
SEC Country reached out to LSU for a comment on this report but did not receive a response.
Jones was the Tigers’ head coach since 2012. He is 90-71 overall with a 42-48 record in conference play. He recruited eventual No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons to LSU in 2015 but failed to make the NCAA Tournament during Simmons’ one season with the team.
The Tigers have one tournament appearance during Jones’ five-year tenure in Baton Rouge, losing in the round of 64 to N.C. State in 2015.
LSU plays Mississippi State in the first game of the SEC Tournament in Nashville on Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET on SEC Network. The winner of that game will play No. 5 seed Alabama on Thursday.
