VCU's Will Wade hired as next coach at LSU
 
Will Wade is leaving VCU to take over LSU after guiding the Rams to the NCAA Tournament in both his seasons as coach.

LSU made the announcement Monday night on its athletics website and Twitter. It said more details will be available Tuesday, but sources told ESPN's Jeff Goodman the deal is for six years.

The announcement was attributed to Vice Chancellor and athletic director Joe Alleva, who flew to Richmond on Sunday with deputy AD Eddie Nunez and met with Wade for several hours.

Wade, 34, was the head coach of the Rams for two seasons, taking over when Shaka Smart left for Texas in 2015.

VCU is 51-20 under Wade, making back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances.

Wade was also the head coach at Chattanooga for two seasons, going 40-25 overall and 27-7 in the Southern Conference.
