He was once King of Basketball on the Bayou..
Former LSU Coach John Brady seemingly had it all working in his favor after taking the Bayou Bengals to the Final Four in 2006..
That was the 4th Final Four in LSU history...
But, in this "what have you done for me lately" world..Brady fell out of favor and was fired in the middle of his 11th season in Baton Rouge...
Brady, speaking at Southland Gaming and Racing in West Memphis today..
He says the firing opened the Door for Arkansas State to scoop him up.
Brady says forget about the SEC..
The Sun Belt Conference is the place to be with his new team..the Red Wolves.
So, how good can A-State be?
"I don't think there's much difference betweeen Jonesboro and Arkansas State and Western Kentucky." Brady says. "They made It to the Sweet 16 last year, why can't we do that? We've got good fans here who love good basketball."
The Red Wolves open the season with a tough one.. Friday Nov. 14 at Ole Miss.
