LSU needs a soccer coach. Scott Woodward just left here for LSU. Any chance he goes after Phil and/or Lori Stephenson for their first head coaching gigs or does he go with an established head coach? The LSU job's been open a long time but obviously couldn't be filled until the new AD came on board there, and now he has.

Are they looking for a HC job? I'm sure they have had plenty of offers over the years.

IDK. I was just wondering b/c Woodward is familiar with Phil and Lori and their abilities.

ADs are fired and hired over football and football alone. I would imagine that soccer is way down his list of priorities.

Phil would have already gone somewhere if he was going somewhere.

The Aggie Soccer camps make a lot of money. Going to LSU to serve as head soccer coach would be a step up in title only, as it would be an enormous pay cut.

Woodward has bigger fish to fry with a hoops coach named in an FBI investigation and a football team that consistently underperforms.

That's fixed, they amended his contract, wade got some cash, LSU can fire him without penalty if he's found to violated ncaa rules

That's an improvement, but I don't think that the program is "fixed."

He might have "bigger fish to fry," but he still has to hire a soccer coach, and why not a good one who he's familiar with? I really have no idea if either or both of the Stephensons are looking, I even doubt that they are. But most high level coaches want to lead a program at some point and G isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Okay. I don't see it happening though.

Very curious update: Debbie Hensley, who spent 12 years on LSU's staff from 2005-2016, has been appointed as the interim head coach for the LSU soccer team, the LSU Department of Athletics announced on Monday afternoon.

You'd think after 2+ months, an SEC team on the rise which just won the SEC tourney would be able to do more than name a former assistant/associate coach as interim. Seems like it won't be one of our Stephensons, so I'm happy about that. Also seems like something might be amiss in tigerland.

Thank you for referring to Aggie Soccer on the Texas A&M Soccer board. This is a rarity.
