The end is near for Johnny Jones’ time as the LSU men’s basketball coach.
Multiple sources with knowledge of the situation told The Times-Picayune that Jones will be fired after the upcoming SEC Tournament. The Tigers play Mississippi State on Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the opening game of the tournament.
Jones told The Times-Picayune by telephone on Tuesday night he had not heard from anyone in the LSU administration about his job status.
Jones has been on the hot seat since the end of last season but LSU’s performance this year hasn’t done anything to help. LSU is 10-20 this season with a 2-16 record in conference play.
