Strong bond between LSUS coach, AD

On Monday, LSUS athletic director Doug Robinson granted Centenary athletic director Tom Tallach permission to talk with LSUS coach Chad McDowell about the Gents' men's basketball coaching position.

Robinson doesn't know when Tallach plans on contacting McDowell, but he expects it some time this week. Tallach better be ready to make a good presentation because Robinson is ready to ensure McDowell's future at LSUS.

"He’s going to come back to me, and we may not have the last say, but we want Chad at our university," Robinson told me on Monday.

Robinson said he had relationship with McDowell that's very much like a father-son one and was on the verge of tears when talking about his coach.

It's evident the two have a bond that extends beyond the traditional employer-employee relationship. The Centenary offer is going to have to be very, very enticing to lure McDowell away from LSUS.
