LSU has suspended head basketball coach Will Wade in a statement released around 1 p.m. this afternoon. The Tigers face Vanderbilt at home tomorrow in the regular season finale. Details regarding who will coach is yet to be determined.

“Recent media reports regarding Coach Wade are without question concerning to all of us,” said athletic director Joe Alleva. “We are closely coordinating with the NCAA with every step. They have our full cooperation and will will continue to report to them all facts and information on this matter.”

Wade is under scrutiny after a bombshell ‘Yahoo!’ report regarding recruiting violations took the world of Twitter by storm yesterday.
