There's no secret that folks tied to the Dale Brown era at LSU are loyal to their own.

So it makes sense that one of the more prominent names associated with that period would endorse another Brown-coached Tiger for the now-vacant LSU position.

"Johnny Jones is the man," said Collis Temple, Jr., the first African-American player in LSU history who played for for both Brown and Press Maravich in the early 70s. Two of Temple's sons, Collis Temple III and Garrett Temple, also played at LSU. Garrett played his senior season for Trent Johnson, who left LSU Saturday to take the TCU job.
