LSU reaches deal with Stanford coach Johnson
Stanford coach Trent Johnson has reached a deal in principle to become the next head coach at LSU, a source told CBSSports.com on Wednesday morning.
An official announcement is expected in the next 24 hours.
Johnson will take over at LSU after four seasons at Stanford. He's coming off a Sweet 16, but is leaving at a good time considering he is set to lose the Lopez Twins. Plus, Johnson only had one year remaining on his contract at Stanford, where he led the Cardinal to three NCAA tournament appearances.
