Just 3 days after an upset loss to Vanderbilt in the SEC womens tournament the lady tigers hoops program suffered an even bigger upset today. Head Coach Pokey Chatman announced that she is stepping down as head coach effective the end of her current contract on april 30th of this year. She made the announcement in a statement released this afternoon,saying she is leaving the program to pursue other professional opportunities, no word as to what that will entail. But it will be hard to surpass the success she has had with the lady tigers. In her two seasons, LSU has advanced to two NCAA final fours, won two SEC regular season titles and earned a no. 1 seed in each of the last two NCAA tournaments. She also said she planned on coaching the team throughout the ncaa tournament.
