Baylor's Drew an unlikely a candidate

Why haven't we heard much scuttlebutt in the LSU coaching search about Scott Drew, the son of former LSU assistant coach Homer Drew?

This could be one very good reason.

LSU athletic director Joe Alleva is not going to want anything to do with NCAA violation baggage. LSU's been there recently with football and you better believe Alleva is in no hurry to go through it again.

Most people were already thinking Drew would not leave what is generally perceived is a better job at Baylor, which has made two Elite 8 appearances in three years. This might be a better reason why it's not very likely to happen.
