LSU has spoken with VCU head coach Will Wade about its vacant opening, multiple sources confirmed to The Times-Picayune on Sunday afternoon.
ESPN first reported the news and its report also called Wade one of the “frontrunners” for the position.
Wade, 34, led the Rams to the NCAA Tournament in both years as the VCU coach. VCU went 25-11 in 2015-16 and made the Round of 32 as the No. 10 seed. The Rams were once again a No. 10 seed in this year’s tournament but lost to Saint Mary’s in the first round. VCU finished 26-9.
