Clean Out Your Desk Pokey: Chatman Reportedly Given Two Hours to Resign

And the Pokey Chatman show continues! The AP is reporting that Chatman's attorney claims the former LSU coach was given two hours to resign or be fired. The article goes on to say that if the situation can't be resolved amicably, Chatman will sue the university.

I don't pretend to be an expert on the inner workings of the LSU athletic department, but given what we've already heard about athletic director Skip Bertman, can there be any doubt that this story is at least partially true? Making matters even murkier, it appears LSU has no formal policy forbidding relationships between coaches and players, so it's questionable whether there was just cause for Chatman's allegedly forced resignation. Perhaps this is an issue that can be investigated by the lawyer types on the DudeSpin staff!

Stay tuned...
