The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns men's basketball team was eliminated in the first round of the Sun Belt tournament over the weekend. Today, Head Coach Robert Lee is out.
A press conference has been called for 10:00 AM Tuesday morning. It will be announced that Robert Lee will not be retained and the university is looking for a new men's basketball coach.
The Ragin' Cajuns just completed a 13-17 season in Lee's sixth year, the 5th straight non-winning record at UL. The Cajuns haven't made it out of the conference tournament first round in five seasons.
Robert Lee led the Cajuns to an NCAA tournament appearance in his first year as coach, but it's been down hill since. This was the final year of Lee's contract and he was not given an extension at the end of last season.
Women's basketball coach Errol Rogers has not been let go and will be retained for the final year of his contract despite his team finishing 9-22. Rogers has not had a winning season in his 3 years at UL.
Tomorrow, we're expected to learn more about the future of Ragin' Cajuns basketball and what UL is looking for in their next coach.
