BATON ROUGE -- If there was any remaining doubts that Trent Johnson would be stepping down as the head coach at LSU, the university eased them Sunday evening.

LSU released a statement from athletic director Joe Alleva on Sunday regarding Johnson's resignation:

“Sometimes coaching changes work out well for all parties involved, and we will take this opportunity to seek out the best coach for the long-term future of LSU men’s basketball,” Alleva said in the statement. “We will move quickly but deliberately to find a coach who will lead our program with integrity and discipline, someone who will recruit effectively in order to build championship teams while inspiring success in academics, and someone who will energize our fan base. I wish Trent all the best in his new job.”
