After Collis Temple Jr., one of the school's more prominent ex-players, opined that the North Texas coach and former LSU point guard and assistant coach should get the LSU job on Friday, outgoing coach Trent Johnson echoed those sentiments to a Baton Rouge magazine on Saturday. And Dale Brown, the winningest and most prominent former LSU coach, also gave Jones a ringing endorsement Monday.

"I read (athletic director) Joe Alleva's comments in the paper today describing what the next coach needed to be - integrity, discipline - and what he was describing was Coach Johnny Jones," Brown said.
