Sports news, notes & rumors - 7/7

Posted by: Editor-Bonitta Best on Monday, July 7, 2014 at 12:00:00 am

What happened to a nice quiet summer?

Coaches are suing, athletic directors getting fired and band boosters up in arms. Typical HBCU summer, eh?

Grambling State interim President Cynthia Warrick is not letting the interim tag keep her from pounding the gravel. Warrick reassigned Athletics Director Aaron James and released men’s basketball coach Joseph Price on her first official day. Price had coached just two seasons. He issued a statement to the media last Thursday. Read here.

Rumor is women’s basketball coach Patricia Cage Bibbs will be named interim AD.

And speaking of the G-men, a report by Kenn Rashad of TSPNSports.com says the Tigers may be replaced by Langston in the 2015 State Fair Classic. The game has featured Prairie View and Grambling since the 1980s, but a scheduling conflict has the Tigers playing Jackson State on the supposed date of the Classic. Does anybody really want to see Langston vs. PVAM? Stay tuned.

• Alcorn President Alfred Rankins Jr. recently named LLJuan Weir interim AD effective July 1. Weir also is the associate director of athletics/senior woman administrator.

• Texas Southern Marching Band collected all the funds it needed to travel to the NFL Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony after alumnus Michael Strahan donated $100,000. TSU needed $150,000 but surpassed that amount after Strahan, comedian Kevin Hart’s $50,000 pledge and others. Nice job.
