Wade is LSU bound

According to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, Wade will sign a six-year deal to lead the Tigers.

Wade has been VCU’s head coach for the last two seasons. In that time VCU is 51-20 with two NCAA Tournament appearances. The Rams are 1-2 in the Tournament under Wade, having most recently lost to St. Mary’s in the first round on March 16th.

Wade helped VCU to a share of the Atlantic Ten regular season championship for the first time in program history. The Rams came in second to Dayton this season.

Wade is the fourth successful coach in a row to leave VCU, following Jeff Capel (Oklahoma), Anthony Grant (Alabama), and Shaka Smart (Texas). Capel and Grant were fired from their post-VCU gigs, and Smart is 31-25 in two seasons in Austin but just finished up an 11-22 campaign.
