Former LSU Basketball Coach Dale Brown to Speak at Sept. 12 Press Club

Former LSU basketball coach Dale Brown will speak to the Press Club at noon Monday, Sept. 12.

Brown, who coached LSU for 25 years and led his teams to four SEC titles and two Final Four appearances, will discuss responsibilities of college athletes, administrators and the NCAA. His statements come in response to major NCAA violations and sanctions at several prominent universities and controversy at LSU related to the suspension of quarterback Jordan Jefferson.

Press Club meets on Mondays at De La Ronde Hall, which is located at 320 Third St. in downtown Baton Rouge. Lunch, which is served at 11:30 a.m., is $12 for members and $15 for non-members.

The public is invited, but only members of the Press Club and members of the news media are allowed to ask questions during the question-and-answer portion of the program.
