Monken may get Tech job

It's looking more and more as if current LSU assistant coach Todd Monken will be the new head coach at Louisiana Tech. Monken certainly has the inside track, recruiting north Louisiana and east Texas for LSU, along with his past ties to the Bulldog program.

But don't bet the bank on it just yet. Interviews are still underway and there could be a surprise on the horizon.

If Monken does get the job, you can expect him to keep interim head coach Ed Jackson, along with assistants Conroy Hines (a close friend) and Petey Perot. Jackson and Perot have established themselves as strong recruiters, while Hines is indispensable in keeping the players on target academically. Valdosta State coach Chris Hatcher made no such commitment during his interview on Tuesday.
