Will Wade tells LSU he should be allowed to coach

Will Wade tells LSU he should be allowed to coach

LSU coach Will Wade says he should be allowed to coach even if he refuses to sit down to discuss his relationship with convicted middle man Christian Dawkins until after the federal government concludes its investigation into college basketball corruption.

"Last week, when the University decided to place me on administrative leave, I accepted the decision without complaint as I knew that they wanted time to reflect on the flurry of media reports," Wade said in a statement. "With the benefit of a week to consider the circumstances, I believe University officials should allow me to resume my duties."

His request comes a day after a letter sent to LSU chancellor F. King Alexander, athletic director Joe Alleva and others from Wade's attorney, Michael G. McGovern in New York surfaced.

It said that "upon conclusion of the pending [Southern District of New York] criminal investigation, Coach Wade will be happy to meet with you and LSU's Board of Supervisors and to answer any and all questions you may have."

Wade's unwillingness to discuss what he said to Dawkins in telephone calls that were intercepted by FBI wiretaps likely means he won't coach in this week's SEC tournament or any of the No. 9 Tigers' games in the upcoming NCAA tournament.
